Your life as a graduate student can oftentimes be devoted to careful thinking on the development of your personas as scholars, teachers, and professionals. The objective of this Lunch & Learn workshop is to explore the construction of the online dimension of your professional selves. In an age when little remains private, and when cursory Google searches about professionals with whom we interact are almost second nature, we must consciously construct the image of our professional selves that we wish the world to see.
This workshop, "Lunch & Learn | About Me: Designing Your Academic Digital Identity," will feature an invited guest speaker, Dr. Brian Croxall, research assistant professor of digital humanities at Brigham Young University, where he designs, implements, and manages digital research projects as well as teaches courses on digital humanities and American literature. He'll speaking to grad students about managing their digital identity and optimizing search engines to work for you.
You definitely don't want to miss out on this informational and relevant workshop, especially as so many graduate students will be entering the job market. As always, free lunch will be provided to all grad students in attendance.
Registration is encouraged to aid with preparations. Students who don't register in time can still attend.
