Controlling your digital identity is increasingly important. A recent article in the Chronicle notes “if you do not have a clear online presence, you are allowing Google, Yahoo, and Bing to create your identity for you.” [1. Marshall, Kelli. “How to Curate Your Digital Identity as an Academic.” The Chronicle of Higher Education 5 Jan. 2015. The Chronicle of Higher Education. Web.] This workshop series will help you learn the necessary skills to use WordPress–a common website platform–and apply those skills to create a digital CV.
Please bring your laptop and your lunch with you to the sessions. We will spend the first portion of the workshops going over the topic and skills for the week. The rest of the time will be devoted to you working on building your site.
All sessions will be held in the Digital Scholarship Center (Bertrand Library 123).
