Overview

Your College of Education Faculty Profile is composed of data from several sources:

  • Your name, title, contact information, profile statement, profile photo, and CV come from the College Directory.  The College Directory also controls whether or not your profile can pull data from Illinois Experts.
  • The list of courses you teach is derived from campus data (Banner).
  • The rest of the data on your profile (publications, awards, research statement, etc.) is derived from Illinois Experts.

To edit

  1. Login at https://go.illinois.edu/ed-mydirectory.
  2. From here, you can upload your profile and CV, and update additional information like Biography and Activities. 

Interaction with Profile

Note that if you have an Illinois Experts Profile, the Biography and Activities will be overwritten by that. This is only for people who do not have an Illinois Experts profile.
