Have you heard? Our university has a professional website platform that can be used to share the work you do at the university. This platform is easy to use and can be personalized to meet your professional needs.  Actually…you are viewing this website platform now! We (your EdTech team) are now using this website to bring information and ideas straight to you. Are you interested in customizing your own personal page but unsure of all the ways you could use this? Don’t worry… here are some examples on how you can use this web space listed in the U.OSU webpage:

  • A professional profile that highlights scholarly, pedagogical, and service activities, with pages for a biographical statement, curriculum vitae, teaching overview and course listing, research statement and more.
  • A portfolio of projects, both in process and completed, that can be used to demonstrate skills and experiences. Regular posts can share progress on ongoing projects in the field or in the classroom.
  • A forum to enable sharing amongst community members who might otherwise be separated geographically or by discipline.
  • A site to host and share resources, notes, and collections of digital materials.
  • A site created for use in a class or as a group project (assuming the site is ultimately owned and managed by one individual).

This is a great way to reach your professional community and your students. If you would like more information or just to talk through possibilities contact your EdTech team. In the meantime, please visit https://u.osu.edu/  to see examples and learn how to get started.
