1) for thinking through my career/professional aspirations,
2) for honing my writing and new media skills, and
3) for learning how to emphasize substance and quality in my writing while I participate in professional development networks in the new “attention economy.”
I have written about the above objectives in a blog post here [to insert link], elaborating the benefits to my intellectual and professional development that I found in creating such a multidimensional, multimodal, and multi-purpose “blogfolio.” Dr. Shyam Sharma, in whose class (Writing For Your Profession) I first created this blogfolio as an assignment project, has also written a blog post about the importance of the social dimension in students’ portfolios on the class site here [to insert link].
I am learning the basics of web design while working on this project, but I hope I’ve been able to present what I have to say/show about my undergraduate education and professional experiences in an effective, accessible manner.
