Happy 4th of July! In answer to the question about identity: I’m on a couple of list serves in my discipline, which is loaded with great ideas and other professors as teaching resources. There I am both a visitor and an observer of the professional conversation. My presence online is limited in purpose to writing to my students for my online courses, posting announcements, leaving kaltura voice tapes with power points and google or other engine searches. I use Google docs primarily to collaborate with faculty. On my bucket list is the goal to start a blog this year—to build out beyond the semester, the learning from one of my courses. When I get around to building the blog I have in mind, I will inevitably need to think about my identity on that blog. For now, my identity friend and colleague to those with whom I work , professor to my students, etc., etc. It’s about the context and the Presentation of Self in Everyday Life (online), which is an excellent book about our many faces by Erving Goffman. Perhaps I fear being thrown in to the cyber void as Bonnie Stewart wrote in the reading for this week, praise of living in public. I have some reflecting to do about this week’s identity topic, especially for that “institutional” professional blog I’d like to initiate.
