Welcome to 23 Things for the Digital Professional, the online learning programme for research staff and students at the University of Warwick. Over the next 10 weeks we will be posting 23 things on this blog introducing participants to a range of online tools for maximising your impact, research and teaching.
Registration opens today and will remain open until midnight on Sunday 23rd October. Full details of how to register will be posted under Thing 1. It is possible to take part in the programme anonymously. The only time we will ask for your full name and contact details is on the registration form. This will only be seen by the team running the programme. For any other accounts that you create you may then use a pseudonym.
During week 1 participants will create a blog (full details of how to do this will be provided in the post for Thing 1). To complete the programme each week you must write a blog post about the activity or thing described. This will allow us to track your progress through the programme and also act as a place for you to reflect on what you have learned. The participant blogs are a great way to build a community and we would recommend that you both read and comment on other participants' blogs.
