(2) Share your work - publishing trends and venues; archiving and preservation options;

(3) Get Noticed - building and managing your online presence; posting, linking, and promoting your work;

(4) Demonstrate your impact - tools and methods to track and explore engagement with your work, and

(5) Tell your story - communicating the work you do.
