Adding a bio to your OpenLab profile


By the start of Wednesday’s class, add a comment with a revised bio here. This is the bio you will use in your OpenLab profile if you are willing to–if you’re not, you can still show that you can make choices about audience, tone, scope, etc, without adding the bio to your profile.

Class notes:

We’ve all thought about our avatars, bios, and OpenLab profiles for Project #2. Our thoughts about having a bio in your profile:

  • you’re more open/exposed/visible to your audience
  • shows you’re engaged
  • pretty static, can be updated
  • can show your investment in, knowledge about your field
  • context and audience is important
  • Who is your audience?
    • other students, faculty and staff members, advisors at City Tech; in your major
    • other people who share in the discourse of the field
    • people who Google you!
    • Possible employers, internship coordinators, graduate school admissions, future collaborators
  • What goes in it?
    • who you are
    • interests: academic, professional, related hobbies
    • goals
    • accomplishments
    • tone, voice, person
      • is it casual or formal? do you include a salutation?
      • vocabulary and terminology
      • 1st person or 3rd person
    • scope
      • length, range of topics
