Optimizing learning in project-based capstone courses

Optimizing learning in project-based capstone courses

“Student interaction with internal and external stakeholders in the organization can promote learning by illuminating the interplay of stakeholder interests and the often complex trade-offs inherent in many organizational decisions. Such interaction also teaches the value of negotiation skills as the organization seeks to influence these various stakeholders to accept their project recommendations.” (p.95) “The course facilitator should always stress that the student's individual learning is the super-ordinate goal.” (p.96)
