What does it take to be a great actor, geologist, academic, or chemist? This educator resource incorporates a 10-minute brainstorming exercise, some research on ‘discipline role models’, and a self-assessment/reflection.
The brainstorming exercise is a 10-minute activity to use in class with students in groups. We have included an example of a self-assessment exercise for music students. You can adapt this for your discipline! The self-assessment enables students to apply what they have learned to their own planning and professional identities.
If you are keen to have a few small activities across a semester, try linking this resource with ‘Finding Your Mission’ and ‘Plotting Your Preferences’. The latter can be used to help build effective teams and as a self-reflection for strengths and areas of development.
