The Honors Capstone Seminar develops advanced undergraduate group research skills including planning and presenting research findings at a community-wide academic symposium. It also advances the level of critical thinking, effective communication, and applied learning through ePortfolios. It was through this course that I became an excellent group worker as well as a splendid researcher.
Think, Engage, Create, Communicate, & Apply are the core learning outcomes for the college.
Additionally, we created an abstract a week before our presentation. This assignment did the final condensation of our scope of work for the presentation we made.
The last assignment we had to was a reflection for the class. This last reflection was extremely useful, since it let me rethink all of the skills that I have learned through out this seminar and how they apply to the colleges’ core learning outcomes.
Lastly we got to create a presentation to communicate our research during the Lane Honors symposium.
This Course was one that gave me amazing opportunities to independently research and then reflect on best practices with guidance.
