The cpd23 team are chuffed and honoured to have been awarded a 'highly commended' runner-up certificate in the inaugural Credo Reference Digital Award for Information Literacy, awarded yesterday evening at the Librarians Information Literacy Annual Conference (LILAC). Sarah Nicholas nominated cpd23 for the award, writing:
For a unique, collaborative online programme, borne of the organisers’ enthusiasm, to have impacted on the professional development of at least 787 librarians and to have had such an expressed, lasting and fundamental effect on the professional behaviour of my colleagues compels me to seek national acknowledgement for its organisers in the form of the Credo Reference Digital Award for Information Literacy.We are grateful to Sarah for writing such a thorough and positive nomination statement, and for collecting the certificate on our behalf last night. We're also grateful to everyone who has taken part in cpd23 so far: it's the participants that have made it such a success.
The winners of the Credo Reference Digital Award for IL award were Carol Elston, Jade Kelsall, Michelle Schneider and Lizzie Caperon (E-learning Team, Skills @Library, University of Leeds). They were nominated for their fabulous Library Guide – an online introduction to the library.You can also have a look at the super work done by the other nominees.
The return of cpd23: watch this space
Due to popular demand, we are going to embark on a structured re-run of the cpd23 course. Starting in May (date to be confirmed), will we be re-posting all of the Things from last year. So, if you're new to the course then this is the perfect time to start. On the other hand, if you started last year and need a little motivation to finish, you're very welcome to join in as well. We aim to pace this re-run at a more relaxed tempo than last year, but all the old posts will remain available throughout, so you can continue to work through the Things at your own speed, too.
The full details haven't been worked out yet, but we will announce them as soon as they're finalised.
