Description

Externships are the perfect soil to help students form their professional identity. While the fertile environment in Externships may result in some professional identity development without much planning, intent is the key to long-term, consistent results for all students. Presenters will share their attempts to define and purposefully inject professional identity formation lessons/exercises in their curriculum. There will be a chance to reflect on the lessons learned from each presenters attempt to design curriculum focused on professional identity formation. Participants will explore the concept of professional identity formation and have an opportunity to reflect on their professional identity formation in small working groups. Participants will use the collective power of working groups to spark some innovative lessons that engage students and fit with their specific programs. We anticipate participants will leave the session with concrete ideas, examples, and/or lessons for immediate implementation.
