Please join us on Tuesday, December 8, 2015, in the Davis Family Library 105B at 12:15 PM.
A curriculum vitae is one of many options for sharing your scholarly and teaching work. In the age of digital connections, it is now possible to have a professional website or digital portfolio that allows you to share work with new audiences. How do our colleagues share themselves and their work online? What kinds of digital environments blur the lines between our work, the work students do in our classes and public spheres? Join us for a roundtable discussion highlighting how some faculty have chosen to share their work digitally. Our discussion will be led by Professor Mark Sample, Associate Professor of Digital Studies, and Kristen Eshleman, Director of Digital Learning Research & Design, both from Davidson College.
Mark and Kristen will share their experiences of launching Davidson Domains, a pilot program “what gives faculty, staff, and students a ‘domain of one’s own’—and online space for blogs, exhibits, research, creative work, portfolios, web development, programming, and more” (Sample, 2015). One goal of the Davidson Domains project is to help Davidson community members to “forge a digital identity through online publishing.” Mark and Kristen will share their perspectives on the pilot and how it has impacted the sharing of faculty and student work to broader audiences.
As time allows, we’ll turn to a discussion of how Middlebury faculty share their digital presences and discuss what questions and decisions drove their choices for creating a digital presence.
