Last spring Professor Marie desJardins asked me to talk to her graduate class on Basic Research Skills. I chose to talk about why researchers should establish a presence on the web and effective ways to do it today.
Be on the Web. Researchers should develop a presence on the Web to make their work more visible. This presentation touches on some of the best practices and also a few or the worst. topics include web pages, blogs, putting papers on the Web, and search engine optimization.
I’ve agreed to give a similar talk again this spring for the course, which is being taught by Professor Krishna Sivalingam. I am interested in seeing what changes I fell have to me made as I revisit the slides. If anyone has suggestions — please let me know.
