Briefly reflect on your general education capstone experience and address the following questions:
1. What are the key takeaways from this class that you will carry with you?
2. What did it take to bring your paper and presentation together, and how has that experience shaped your professional outlook?
3. What recommendations or advice would you provide for students who will take this capstone course in the future?
The capstone seminar is a culminating in-depth experience in which students formulate their integrated General Education learning experiences into a final oral and written research-based project, which comprehensively addresses a pressing issue in health care and advances a proposed defensible solution. The application of learned methods, concepts, and theories into the construction of this project serves as the culminating summative evaluation of General Education Program Learning Outcomes achievement following completion of the General Education courses.
Course Learning Outcomes:
Differentiate and evaluate research-based theories, methodologies, and concepts related to a problem within the healthcare industry.
Analyze and interpret research to frame a current healthcare-related problem using multiple sources.
Conduct a literature review on an approved problem topic.
Collaboratively formulate and construct a summative, problem-based paper with other students by assembling, synthesizing, and reformulating valid and reliable methodology and research leading to a proposed ethical and defensible solution.
Design, construct, and deliver an oral defense that advances an argument or an approach to resolve the chosen problem.
