There are a few things that you need to know about Capstone Project…
You’re in good company.
Capstone Project is all about turning ideas into reality.
In Capstone Project, your job is to deliver value.
We (try) to remove as many constraints of a ‘university class’ as possible:
We respect all inputs, perspectives and expertise - no ‘one way’ of thinking will solve the problem.
We trust teams to do their best work, to make good decisions, and to find out what they don’t know.
Capstone Projects are real-world:
Projects are chosen by and diverse teams are created to use the talent from all participants in Capstone Project on Project Selection Night.
Students provide critical review of other projects as Shadows to provide an alternative perspective to project teams.
You’ll be a Team Member and a Shadow.
Being a Shadow improves the quality of everyone’s work.
It is the most important role you will play.
We want you to fail early, fail often, and fail forward.
All stakeholders are involved in evaluating a project audit through the Many Eyes Process.
You then act on that feedback to improve the value you are delivering to the client.
The easiest thing in this course will be focussing on doing great work.
You will use the progress indicators, repository and anything else at your disposal to ‘propose’ your final grade through the Team Review process
(By this stage, you should know exactly where your group stands…)
Tutors mentor students at meetings before and after audit weeks in a cycle of planning, acting, and reflecting.
We will be running a program for team members to develop some leadership skills.
Teams present their prototypes and work to the Canberra community at the Project Showcase.
