OCC 771 Preparation for Capstone II
The Preparation for Capstone II course builds upon planning initiated in OCC 761. With information from the needs assessment, the student will conduct an in-depth review of the literature to further conceptualize their capstone project. Students will identify individualized objectives for their capstone project and DCE and plan learning activities for the DCE in collaboration with their site mentor and faculty mentor. Students will also learn about project implementation and different evaluation methods for their capstone project. Depending on the nature of the project and evaluation methods used, some students may also need to complete an IRB application during this course. By the end of the course, students will be expected to translate the results of their needs assessment and literature review into a preliminary capstone proposal that is relevant to the identified needs of their DCE site. In addition, students will complete a defense of their capstone project with their Capstone Project Advisory Committee (CPAC).
