Thesis Capstone Project
The thesis capstone project is a requirement of all candidates for the Digital Media Design for Learning (DMDL) MA. Students develop the thesis capstone in the course EDCT-GE 2095, Research in Educational Communication and Technology.
The thesis capstone is a culminating project for which graduating students are expected to integrate and apply what they have learned through previous academic work and field experiences, with faculty supervision. These projects may be "new," relative to work done in previous courses; or they may be projects started in a previous course that become significantly expanded and enhanced for the thesis capstone.
Thesis capstone students meet in class as a group weekly, reporting on the progress of their projects, discussing their research, and screening prototype media for peer and faculty critique and suggestions. At the conclusion of the semester, students present their thesis capstone projects to the DMDL community at the Master of Arts Colloquium.
