PG Training Workshop | Creating a website with Andy Law

29 November 2017

Time: 2:30 - 4:00pm
Venue: Scape 1.04

A strong online profile can provide a professional-looking home in which to present all the key information about your academic career (and more). It can work as a more engaging and potentially more expansive version of your CV. This workshop will cover the fundamentals of creating your multi-page profile using WordPress.com (creating a site with a URL like williamlabov.wordpress.com), as well as detail on how and why you might want to set up your own full domain (e.g. williamlabov.com). WordPress is a very widely-used and therefore well-supported platform for creating blogs and websites. We’ll go through setting up your profile step-by-step, and cover all the skills you need to continue to update and maintain your profile independently after the session. In order to fully participate in the workshop, please bring a laptop!
