B. Through People webpage (if you don't have access to My Dashboard or your name doesn't come up in My Dashboard)

Note, if you do not see "My Dashboard" or your name is not listed in "My Content" tab, you can navigate to your People page by:

  1. Search for your name in the list of People on the utility menu (under the search bar) and click on the link. (this will take you to your CECS profile)
  2. Click the Edit tab at the top of your profile page.

On this page you can update all your personal details and your research. Some of this will have been filled out when you arrived, but it is your responsibility to maintain for accuracy during your time here at ANU.

When editing your profile, you will see the following tabs:

  • Details: contains your general contact information, including title, names, and positions. 
  • Media: your photo
  • Contacts: your email address, phone, room number etc.
  • Description: links to other online profiles, and a biography open text fields for you to descirbe your expereince and research
    The Description area also has free text fields for research interests, publications, teaching etc that you would like to feature. These are optional, but if completed will show on additional tabs on your profile.
  • Metadata: select the research areas that you identify with, add any students you supervise.

Note, if you would like to connect your People page with an existing 'Research Project' or 'Student Project' on our website, you will need to edit this on the project listing's metadata tab.
