Over the course of my time in the Academic Technology Group at Middlebury I became the go-to person for helping CTLR and faculty in general to set up event registration sites in WordPress. Since these opportunities began to present themselves to me in more and more frequent consistency I began to use them as a way to test out the configuration settings on new themes activated on our Middlebury server. This process both helped me to more fully understand WordPress functionality as well as the ways in which themes can be used to manipulate and display content in a variety of ways.
I think this process has been successful as I find myself being sought out by more faculty members who are interested in sharing their programming more widely. I’m hopeful that my work is helping to make it easier for more faculty to hear about more programming options outside of their departments and divisions.
