Write a description of the specific experience that covers the following questions:

  • What was the nature of the experience? In what area were you working?
  • With what organization/association/program did you work or did you participate?
  • What did you do? What were your responsibilities?
  • Why did you choose to pursue this experience in particular?


Craft a thoughtful reflection that addresses ALL of the questions below in one of the following formats – written text (500 word max), video (1:30-2:30 min max) or audio recording (1:30-2:30 min max), slide deck (3-5 slides):

  • What innovative ideas did you generate to address complex problems identified in this experience?
  • Write about a specific time where you failed and what did you learn from this failure?
  • What are the most important things you learned in this experience and why?


Select and post an artifact that either summarizes a major deliverable or is a major deliverable within your experience. The selected artifact must demonstrate innovation, entrepreneurship, or a facet related to your overall certificate objective. In addition, include a very brief description (not to exceed 250 words) of the artifact to provide a basic context and understanding for the reader/viewer.
