Conversation of the Week — How do I develop a high-impact capstone course?

Presentation date: March 2, 2015 and on demand for one week

This is a very timely topic as we develop a new integrated capstone in the majors. We encourage you to  start a conversation over coffee with colleagues this week or contribute to the discussion in the online forum. But let’s get the conversation going!

Capstone courses help students synthesize their college education before they embark on professional careers or graduate studies. This 20 Minute Mentor shows you how to construct a capstone course for specific learning outcomes.

Learning Goals

  • · Design a capstone course
  • · Articulate learning outcomes
