This workshop looks at creating your academic profile and expanding your network.  It introduces you to tools for creating a profile, including strategies for selecting the best tool for your needs.  The workshop also introduces ways to share your research (and publications) with scholars and the wider community. The workshop deals with non-traditional media such as open education resources, and social tools such as Twitter, podcasts and open bibliography. Bring your questions and expertise to share with participants for the Q/A period.
