Title: Building an Academic Online Presence
Author(s): Sherri Rose*

Keywords: career development; online communities; twitter

There are many avenues available for sharing research, teaching materials, academic advice and other resources online. These range from institution-hosted websites to managing multiple accounts across many platforms (e.g., Twitter, YouTube, etc). Engaging in academic communities online can have unique benefits, especially for early career scholars and those who may be isolated at their current institution. In this roundtable session we will discuss several general considerations for creating and growing an academic online presence, including 1) tailoring the time investment and style to suit individual scholars, 2) managing the pros and cons of various platforms, 3) strategies for sharing content to maximize interest, and 4) translating online interactions into career-building opportunities.
