Chris Ward, Ed.D., associate professor of business and
director of experiential learning, student engagement and community outreach,
will present the Power of Portrayal: Building and Maintaining Your Online Brand
(E-Professionalism) from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, in The University of
Findlay’s Alumni Memorial Union Endly Room.
Ward’s presentation is part of the Wilkin Chair series of
events this year. Ron Tulley, Ph.D., associate professor of English, is the
2012-13 Richard E. Wilkin Chair for the College of Liberal Arts.
Tulley will devote one year of study to the
interdisciplinary exploration of a single topic, The Power of Portrayal — The
Social Nature of (Re-)Presenting a “Self:” Role Playing, Social Networking and
Identity Formation in the Digital Age.
According to Tulley, his theme is designed to create a
discourse community at The University of Findlay that investigates, discusses
and debates what it means to construct a self-image in the digital age.
