In October, we held a workshop for Phi Theta Kappa and Lane Honors Program members on how to create a CV and how to present at academic conferences. The workshop took place on our Discord server in the Honors voice channel. Claire Dannenbaum shared information about the University of Oregon’s Undergraduate Research Symposium coming up this spring. Erika Masaki discussed why someone might want to participate in an academic conference and what to expect at conferences. Ce Rosenow explained what a CV is and reviewed how to create one. Use the links in this post to access the materials shared during the workshop. You can also visit the University of Oregon’s website for information about their symposium. We will hold more workshops in winter and spring, including additional mentoring for presenting at conferences and creating ePortfolios.
Please join us in the Phi Theta Kappa voice channel on Discord for our two chapter meetings and in the Honors Program voice channel on Discord for two workshops this term! If you haven’t joined Discord, contact Ce at RosenowC@lanecc.edu for the link.

The regional officers are holding a scholarship workshop! Here is the information from our regional coordinator:
Have questions about the PTK scholarship? Need a little push to get your application started? Need tips about writing a scholarship essay?
Come spend the night with the RMC region and apply for scholarships. Our goal with this scholarship night is to all work on the PTK application at our own pace, but have an environment where you can ask questions as they come up during the process.
Tuesday November 17th, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm PST / 7:00 pm-9:00 pm MST

Many of you are engaged in undergraduate research in your classes, and you may be presenting some of that work at the college’s Undergraduate Research Fair and/or at the University of Oregon’s Undergraduate Research Symposium. Many of you are also wonderful fiction writers, painters, photographers, poets, song writers, and other types of writers and artists. It’s time to start publishing your work!
This publication workshop covers several aspects of the publication process:
- where to find places to submit your work,
- how to submit it,
- what to expect in response, and
- how to track submissions and publications.
Don’t forget that Lane Community College has its own journal, Denali, where you can send work!
When you do have work published, be sure to add that information to your CV and resume. See this Curriculum (CV) Workshop for more details.
Check out this short workshop by Casey Reid and Ce Rosenow, and start building your own expanded resume known as a curriculum vitae or CV!
Contact Casey (ReidC@lanecc.edu) or Ce (RosenowC@lanecc.edu) if you have questions or would like more help with your CV!
