Once you’ve completed the six core workshops and practiced your leadership skills through an on-campus experience, the final step is to sit back and reflect. Connect what you learned in workshops and your practical experience to prepare for future leadership roles.
The reflection is the final component of the program. Please submit your reflection on the Certify page. Your reflection is not marked or graded, and you will receive feedback on your submission.
You can submit your reflection in any of the following formats:
- Written reflection: Take the time to reflect on your experience through writing. Maximum length: 1050 words.
- PowerPoint presentation: Showcase your learning in a visual presentation.
- Video reflection: Submit a video reflection to describe and reflect upon your experience in the program. Maximum length: 5 minutes. Upload your video to a third-party host (i.e. YouTube) and submit the link.
- ePortfolio: Reflect on your leadership journey and document your learning by creating an ePortfolio. Store and collect artifacts from your experience, including worksheets, pictures, workshop notes, print materials or any other resources. By creating an online portfolio, you can translate the skills you’ve learned into tangible items to add your resume, LinkedIn profile, CV, or personal blog. Submit the link to your ePortfolio.
