Learning 2.0, the staff development and training program developed by the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County (N.C.), has been getting lots of attention both for its success in helping librarians learn more about emerging technologies (blogs, RSS, flickr, and more), and for its "open" approach to the design of professional development programs. The project was mentioned more than once at the ACRL National Conference, and has also been featured in WIRED Magazine.
"Emerging technologies" is one of the many facets of our own staff development and training needs in the University Library, and projects like Learning 2.0 and Five Weeks to a Social Library, provide us with examples of how the technologies we need to master can themselves provide new ways of helping us to master them.
Take a look.
