This week’s tip from Leslie DuPree in Web Services. To view this tip on our blog, go to:
All faculty and staff members have the ability to login and edit their directory page on the college website. If you haven’t seen your own page and you wonder what it looks like, then search for your name on our site; use the search box at top right of every web page . Your directory page should be the top search result.
The link to login and update your page is at www.augustana.edu/directory/
You can enter, preview and edit text on your page at any time. Add a website link, a CV or list of publications. List your office hours.
Faculty members who are writing a biography for their pages might wish to consider the online “audiences” who will read it, especially prospective students. Some possible questions you might want to answer would be:
- What’s unique and valuable about you and your approach to teaching? Why should students want to study with you?
- What attracted you to studying (your discipline)? What made you want to become a professor?
- How do you interact with students outside the classroom (e.g., do you advise clubs, take students on field trips, engage in service learning projects?)
- How do you see the relationship between your scholarship and your teaching? (e.g., do you involve students in your research? Do you work closely with students on their research projects? Have you helped students to present their work to wider audiences?)”
Contact me or Kristina Jansson if you have questions or need help.
