Career development: CPD23 anyone?

I’ve just signed up to the CPD23 project, a new initiative aimed at training information professionals in all aspects of social media. I’m going back to work in a few weeks (gulp), so it’ll be good to have a career development project on the go to keep me motivated while I try to remind myself how to do my job!

As well as learning some new skills, I hope it’ll help me on my chartership journey, and get me in touch with like-minded librarians and info pros. There are only a few researchers left in my company and it’s getting lonely! It starts on 20th June so there’s plenty of time to join.

From the official blog:

Free CPD coming up!
23 Things for Professional Development is a free online programme open to information professionals at all stages of their career, in all types of role, and anywhere across the world.

Inspired by the 23 Things programmes for social media, this new programme will consist of a mixture of social media “Things” and “Things” to do with professional development. The programme starts on 20 June and will run until early October 2011.

Each week the CPD23 blog will be updated with details of the next thing to be explored. Catch up weeks and reflection weeks are built into the programme, so it’s not a problem if you’re going to be away for a week or two!

Please do spread the word to any friends, colleagues, or groups that might be interested: please pass on this message and link to If you’re on Twitter follow @cpd23 and tweet with the hashtag #cpd23.
