On July 10, the students and alumni at San Jose State U School of Library & Information Science launched a terrific new 23 Things learning program. The program was designed for SJSU SLIS library school students and alumni, but the content will be available for anyone to follow along on their own.
The 23 Things for SLIS Students and Alumni: Essential Skills for Success will encompass 23 technologies and skills recommended for SJSU SLIS students and alumni by SLIS students and alumni. These technologies will be presented in a module format taking the participant through weekly 20-30 minute tutorials followed by an exercise to demonstrate learning.
The topics will cover tech tools of value to new students, professional development and presentations, and resources for new LIS professionals. Whether you’re an LIS student or not, take a look and pick some modules to learn some new skills, you won’t earn the fun badges, but you’ll learn something new! Or consider adapting the program to implement at your own school, complete with badges. And who doesn’t like badges.
