Looking for a crash course in creating and maintaining a digital identity? Are you ready to meet your students and other professionals in the digital world? The Graduate School can help with a workshop designed for you. The objective of this faculty workshop is to explore the construction of the digital identity for faculty members. 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. At the same time, faculty will be able to connect with their students in a more meaningful way when understanding the methods and means that graduate students use to present their professional selves.
This faculty workshop, "A Crash Course in Digital Identities," 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 be speaking to faculty about managing their digital identity through social media and other professional services. He'll also talk about how faculty involvement as a digital presence can help enrich the mentoring process with graduate students.
You definitely don't want to miss out on this informational and relevant workshop, especially as so many of your students will be crafting their own digital identities. Refreshments will be provided for all in attendance.
