Taking Control of Your Academic Profile Online | GPDI279


When someone looks you up online: what do they see? How will future employers learn about your accomplishments? While taking inspiration from outstanding researcher profiles, this workshop is designed for graduate students across disciplines to make informed decisions about their online presence. In building a public image of one’s scholarship, we will explore a range of profile systems such as Google Scholar, social media for academics, university profiles, and ORCID. While offering general tips and tricks, special attention will be given to ORCID as a versatile tool, favouring the researcher’s control. Finally, there will be plenty of space for a critical discussion on the benefits and challenges of public and open scholarship. Come prepared to explore and participate.     

Learning Objectives

1. Explore examples of outstanding researcher profiles 
2. Understand how ORCID connects with existing publishing, granting, and profile systems
3. Make informed decisions on the different researcher profile options out there
4. Discuss the benefits and challenges of public and open scholarship
