Crafting Your Professional Digital Footprint

Interested in having this shared as a presentation or workshop for your organization?
Description: Your digital footprint is visible when someone searches Google for your name. What are the top search results? As faculty members we need to maintain up-to-date websites reflecting our publications, research and academic activities. These sites can become cornerstones of our professional "digital footprints." In this nuts-and-bolts session, we'll analyze several exemplary faculty websites to identify both important content as well as effective designs for sharing it. We will specifically explore Wordpress (a free content management system) and learn how to use it to build an effective, online information portal as a faculty member. We will also explore ways our professional social media profiles on websites like Twitter, Facebook. Google+, and LinkedIn can be integrated with our primary professional website. Learn to take charge of your digital footprint and advance your academic career.
