If the first step was setting up the blog, it seems the second step is to start writing in it. I’ll admit to having never done this before, which is why when a friend in Australia suggested this I thought it was a great way to ease myself into online life. I am not a part of the University of Edinburgh, but I think it is great that they’ve opened this program to the world.
I suppose I hope to gain more confidence in navigating the online world, especially as I go on the job market. I also hope to pull some of the things I learn into my professional life – especially as it pertains to online presence and teaching in a digital world. Some of the 23 things I am already familiar with, but it will be interesting to see them through a new perspective. However, others, I am not so familiar with and I am looking forward to learning about them.
