This episode is part of a classroom edition series to the podcast, featuring panels I moderated for my Florida State University graduate-level course, Technology in Higher Ed. Sometimes phrases like “personal branding” and “online presence” feel like buzzwords, which is why we’re dissecting them in this week’s panel. Guests Laura Pasquini, Katie Linder, and Ed Cabellon talk about their approaches to digital identity, give their advice for maintaining a positive digital reputation, and even touch on privacy concerns related to an online presence.

Laura Pasquini is a Lecturer in the Department of Learning Technologies in the College of Information at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX and a Researcher with The Digital Learning and Social Media Research Group at Royal Roads University in Victoria, BC. Her scholarly work examines digital and open practices, specifically how social technologies impact and influence professional organizations, learning networks, and communities of practice. Laura thinks it’s a critical time for colleges and universities to be proactive in how they support and navigate digital interactions with their campus stakeholders. We need to model and mentor digital identity development for our students, staff, and faculty at our institutions. When she’s not researching or teaching you can find her wrassling with rescue pups, playing her ukulele, crafting a cocktail, or off the grid to take a hike or exploring the globe.
