A promising discovery

USQ 23 Things: a USQ Library Pilot Project and licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.

23 Things for Higher Education is an online learning program for university staff, exploring a range of digital tools that can support your professional practice.
The site provides an orientation, and is a short course (three months) covering topics such as blogging, twitter, Facebook, privacy and confidentiality, YouTube, copyright and licensing and LinkedIn. The idea being for participants to set up their own blog, register it and post reflections on the ‘Things’ and their participation.
Examples of other ’23 Things’ that have been used to explore Web 2.0 technologies are provided.

I intend to explore this site further to inform my assignment work in this course. There’s some useful information about blogging too – unfortunately I had not followed this up until recently, as I was too bogged down with all my NGL tasks!

Hopefully this pilot will become a permanent feature and provide a space for all staff to experiment and learn about some of the technologies and practices used in NGL. This should assist them to provide learning opportunities for their students to utilise some of the Web 2.0 technologies available to support their education.
