SIGITE/RIIT 2012 » ACM Conference on IT Education/Research » Panel: Capstone Experiences for Information Technology

Panel: Capstone Experiences for Information Technology

  • The integrative capstone experience is central to the advanced level of a four-year IT degree program as defined by the IT 2008 Curriculum Guidelines [1]. The general requirements for this experience include that students work in teams of 4-8 on a realworld project. This project should be sufficiently complex to require a team effort over many weeks. However, the implementation of the integrative capstone experience can vary widely from a design course without external clients, to projects that have real clients to professional internships and co-operative education experiences. Courses may also vary based on length, evaluation approach, process and deliverables, and instructor role.

    The goal of this panel is to discuss best practices for capstone experiences for BSIT degree programs. The panel will contrast varied implementations of IT integrative capstone experiences to provide a starting point for discussion. Each panelist will briefly describe their institution’s capstone experience, discuss the benefits and drawbacks to their implementation, share issues and ideas they have for improving the capstone, and discuss student opinions of the capstone. A minimum of 35 minutes will be set aside for audience interactions.
