An introduction to building an online academic profile

It is increasingly important for researchers to have an online presence and to give a coherent ‘voice’ to their research and professional profile online. This workshop helps you to get started in building an online profile, looking at the tools you should apply, the things that you need to consider, and the online locations that you might wish to use.

Course Details

The workshop will have a specific focus on blogs and websites as a focus for an online profile, but other digital tools will also be discussed. As an extension of this session you will be offered access to an online module showing you how to build your own Wordpress website, with the opportunity for feedback. 

All computers will be supplied: please do not bring your own laptop.
