PWR 910ID: Creating Your Digital Self: The What, How, and Why of Building an Online Presence
Have you ever Googled yourself? If so, what information about you rises to the top? A picture of you in your band uniform from your high school? A video you posted to TikTok? Maybe scores from a 5K you ran last year? It might seem like you do not have much control over what you see about yourself in a Google search, but the fact is, you do. The more of your own content you create, the more your self-created information will rise to the top. In this class, you’ll compose and fine-tune an ePortfolio (i.e. a website) that highlights your best work and tells the story behind it. In in-class activities, formal feedback, guest talks, and one-on-one conferences, you’ll be guided through the process of creating a compelling, multidimensional online portfolio. We’ll examine how to connect with different audiences (including alumni and prospective employers), explore how to pique readers’ interest, and delve into how you can represent your authentic self in compelling terms.
