The Linked Data for Professional Educators (LD4PE) project [funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS)] has developed a Competency Index of the skills and knowledge necessary to work effectively with Linked Data. Now the first version of the Competency Index has been released, along with 500+ learning resources cataloged and mapped to the Competency Index. It is time to take advantage of this tool to explore ways to combine the skills and resources for teaching different audiences and self-learning.
This session will give a brief overview of the structure and content of the LD4PE Competency Index, the website, and associated tools provided for organizing and exposing learning resources associated with the competencies.
