Transition From Novice to Expert Tip: Before completing your logic model understand and be able to communicate your Professional Identity (also called Broader Impacts Identity). Combining, specifying, and implementing who you are (identity) with what you do (teaching, research, and service) to build a beneficial legacy inside and outside of the institution is critical to accomplishing high-quality BI and overall faculty success. After Professional Identity is developed – outcomes, outputs, activities, and inputs can be better articulated and evaluated for your respective activities in your BI program.
