Scholarly Identity in Times of Transition

Three areas of importance
  1. Interests - You should find what interests you because your heart will be in it.
  2. Instincts - Be self-aware of what comes naturally to you.
  3. Skills - Some of the 21st century skills are thinking critically, writing, working across disciplines, and articulating your instincts to others.
