Looking at the list of 23 things, I’m already pretty familiar with many of them from my “Information Technology Tools and Applications” course for my MLIS. So why am I doing this program? There are several reasons:
- There are some topics that I do not know as much about and would like to learn more, such as personal branding and advocacy.
- I certainly don’t know everything about any topic, so I could always learn something new, even about the topics I think I know well already.
- There are a lot of people participating, so I may make some new connections. Everyone who’s participating is listed here.
- I’d like to get in the habit of blogging regularly since I’ve let this blog slip a bit. This program could give me the structure I need to make that happen.
I think it’s important to keep learning even though I’m done with school. Sometimes it can be difficult to make time to do this on your own, however. I think that this program, with its weekly schedule and assignments, will be a good way to remedy this problem. I look forward to the next “thing”!
