Strengths for Academics

How can you apply your talents to promote academic success?

The following are reflection questions to assist you in thinking about your talents in terms of your academic pursuits:

    How do you learn information the best?
    How does that style of learning relate to your talents?
    What type of classroom environment have you enjoyed the most?
    What subjects have always captured your interest and attention?
    What is a way to use your talents to achieve an academic goal?

To make the most of this assessment, first reflect on how your talents play out in your daily life and activities. You can then consciously apply your talents to different academic situations, such as how you plan courses, explore careers, and study.

Below you will find information about using each of the 34 themes of talent in academics which can also be a good way to get ideas about how to apply your top five.
