Day 24: How can you put your expertise into action today?

This post is from the 30-day reflective writing series I made for Academic Writing Month (November 2018). For background on the series and links to all the videos, visit this page. To turn on subtitles: On a computer, hover at the bottom of the video window to make the row of icons appear; click on the “settings” icon (which looks like a cog), and select “Subtitles.” On a phone, the “subtitles” icon is in the bottom right corner of the screen.


  • Think of a concrete action you can take today to embody your expertise. It could be any kind of exercise or application of what you know as a result of working on your project.

  • This is a broader question than our teaching question from a few days ago, which dealt with inviting someone else into our own understanding of our subjects. Here, we are thinking about embodied expertise more broadly.

  • You might approach this question by simply taking the action, or you might find it helpful to do reflective writing about the question as well. Either way, focus on actions that contribute to positive change in the world.
