Rudaí 23: open 23 Things course begins in September #Rudai23

"23 Things" initiatives started some time ago, using open tools like blogs to help librarians learn about using Web 2.0 and other tools more effectively, and supporting Continuing Professional Development. In September 2017, Rudaí 23 begins, "an online, self-directed course based on the 23 Things program, delivered by a collaborative group of librarians and educators, in association with the Western Regional Section of the Library Association of Ireland, and The Library Association of Ireland." There are 23 modules, and "Participants can choose which sections to complete and earn up to 5 digital badges: Visual Communicator, Online Networker, Critical Thinker, Engaged Professional and CPD Champion." Topics include: blogging (as is common with 23 Things inititaives, participants are expected to blog their reflections and experience), image banks, communicating visually, infographics, networking and collaboration tools, professional brand, Personal Data Management, podcasts, advocacy, and evaluating information: reflective practice is encouraged throughout. Registration starts on 28 August 2017.
More information at: Rudaí 23 also ran in 2015 (obviously Rudaí 23 2017 is a heavily revised/ updated version) and you can see the posts for the 2015 iteration on the Rudaí 23 blog
