Communicating Your Professional and Scholarly Self: An #ITeachMSU Series (Part Three)

Friday, March 30, 2018 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm
Chittenden Commons

How many times each semester are you asked to go around and share something about yourselves (your interests, your research, your life outside academia, etc)? Depending on the audience, the context, or where we are at in life, what we include in our story and what platforms we take up to share that story might change. With this in mind it’s important to critically think about the considerations unique to each platform and the ways in which they can be leveraged to tell your story. In this workshop we will review a variety of tools and platforms that can be used to publicly share your narrative(s). We will also discuss the concept of digital presence and how your work (and narratives) can be enhanced / highlighted using best practices as they relate to those platforms (including but not limited to web-based, etc.).

*This is Part Three of a three-part series. In signing up for this series you are signing up to participate in all parts (March 16, March 23, March 30). To register, please visit the event page for the first session (March 16).

**If you missed the first two parts, but are interested in the series, we will be offering a One-day Intensive version of this series. For more information, please see the registration page for this event.

This series is being followed up with a series of co-works meant to engage individuals in regular, collaborative, focused meetups. In these co-work sessions we will work in community around a topic, one of which will be putting the information from this series into action. If you are interested in learning more about these co-works please feel free to contact the workshop facilitators. You can also find the co-works listed on the Graduate School calendar of workshops.
