Mark your calendars: The Pedagogy Group presents a talk on creating and maintaining a successful academic blog. Tues, 4/7, University of Texas, Flawn Academic Center (FAC) Room 9 @ 4pm.
In this competitive job market environment, blogs are becoming an increasingly important means of representing our work and networking with others in our field. If you have thought about setting up your own blog, or want tips on how to expand one you already have, then join the CWRL Pedagogy Group in FAC 9, on Tuesday, 4/7 for a workshop that will cover much of what you need to know.
Pedagogy Group member Liz Jones-Dilworth will discuss how she maintains her own blog, Becoming Dr Jones. Specifically, she will talk about the genesis of her blog, what it has done for her professionally, and how she fashions a topic to make it relevant for her particular audience.
We are also delighted to welcome Josh Jones-Dilworth, of the international PR firm, Porter Novelli. Josh works with high-tech firms across the US, and he will be sharing valuable tips on how to start, maintain and develop a professional blog. Topics covered will include the visual layout of a successful blog, which blogging service to use, the basics of effective blog writing, networking, and how to sustain and expand your readership.
Cookies and beverages will be available, as usual. So, save the date: FAC 9, 4/7 @ 4pm.
