As students undertake an activity, the teacher guides them through the five phases of design thinking. This process can be conducted individually, in small groups, or in whole-group instruction. These strategies can be deployed as stand-alone activities or as a part of a lesson.
Design thinking and doing is a structured approach to generating ideas and creating solutions to making the world a better place though ingenuity, invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
Following are the items you must submit to earn this micro-credential and the criteria by which they will be evaluated. To earn the micro-credential, you must receive a passing evaluation for Parts 1, 3, and 4 and a “Yes” for Part 2.

Please submit work examples from two students (writing, audio, images, video, and other products) that demonstrate progress toward the Design Thinking & Doing competency, including such items as samples of interviews of the people experiencing the problem, results of brainstorming sessions, evidence of the research done, examples of prototype solutions and how they were improved, evidence of presentations of the results, or other relevant items.
For the two students whose work examples were included above, submit their student-created reflections on the Design Thinking & Doing activities they experienced. Use the following questions as guidance (200-word limit for each reflection):
