Given the importance of digital identities to job searches, the promotion and distribution of scholarly work, pedagogical innovation, and many other components of an academic life, it is surprising that higher education professionals receive little to no training about how to best represent themselves in online spaces. During this interactive webinar, based on content from Managing Your Professional Identity Online: A Guide for Higher Education, participants have the opportunity to explore where and how they want to be online. Tips and strategies for regularly updating and maintaining an online presence are also provided. Participants receive a comprehensive list of possible online spaces for professional engagement, as well as a rubric with guiding questions about how to develop online profiles that are consistent, professional, accurate, organized, high-quality, and representative of their academic lives.
