In addition to building a solid foundation of content knowledge in and across disciplines, students must also work to establish a sense of identity. As they progress through their degree program(s), that identity should shift from student to professional with the goal of eventually engaging as a professional in the field while being a student (e.g. in Senior Capstone/Design). The experiences in coursework can be one area where students can observe and strengthen their professional identity, in addition to their co- and extra-curricular work. As instructors, we can employ strategies to help model and build behavior for students. This interactive workshop will explore norms within disciplines and help identify ways to make slight modifications to interactions with students to help support their development of professional identity.
