Date & Time: 2:00 - 3:00pm Eastern Time, September 19th, 2012

Description: The 23 Things concept is familiar to most of us in the library world. Some have tried it out, some have tried a version of it, some still have doubts about whether it works, and some think it's over. Well, I'm here to tell you, it's still going strong! Nebraska's state-wide lifelong learning program, Nebraska Learns 2.0 (http://nlcblogs.nebraska.gov/nelearns/ ), started as a 16 week program in 2008-2009. The original program was so popular it has continued as an ongoing program, with one new Thing offered each month since April 2009. Starting in February 2012, a BookThing was added to the program. Program organizer Christa Burns will talk about the process the organizers have laid out over the past few years, how they've responded to participant feedback, and how the program became what it is today. She will also show other current examples of self-directed online learning programs, such as Boston Public Library's Learning for Life Online and the UK-based 23 Things for Professional Development. 

Presenter: Christa Burns is the Special Projects Librarian, Technology & Access Services, at the Nebraska Library Commission. She provides organization, training, and consultation for special projects, such as the Gates Foundation grants for libraries, E-rate, Learning 2.0, and group purchases of library products and services. Christa also coordinates, produces and hosts the Commission's weekly webinar series, NCompass Live. From 2000-2009, she was the OCLC Member Services Coordinator for NEBASE, the former OCLC Regional Service Provider for Nebraska libraries, providing support and training on OCLC products and services. Before coming to Nebraska in 2000, Christa was Head of Research & Information Services at Pace University in Westchester County, NY.
