Designing Effective Capstone Assignments:
Strengthening Learning, Improving Success
One-day Faculty Development Workshop — May 12, 2017
This interactive workshop will focus on one of the most important challenges in undergraduate education today: providing students with opportunities to connect and integrate the various elements of their learning. This means making connections across courses, within the major and/or between general education and the major, connecting academic coursework and work, citizenship, and personal life. Such connections do not happen automatically; they require intentionally designed experiences–including assignments–that help students integrate their learning.
The workshop is especially intended for faculty who have taught a capstone course — or similar culminating experience course for seniors — and are interested in refining the assignment. Each participant will share a capstone assignment of their choice in a collaborative small group workshop setting, and leave with ideas about how to refine their assignment.
All capstone instructors are welcome to attend this workshop — a one-day version of the popular two-day culminating assignment design workshop with Dr. Pat Hutchings offered in May 2016.
