Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

During the spring term of 2017, the author was selected by a senior (Bachelor of Undergraduate Studies) candidate to mentor and direct their final capstone project. The Bachelor of Integrated Studies (BIS) is an alternative baccalaureate degree program for adults with previous college credit. The program works for students that have significant and substantial work experiences. Essentially, the students are designing their own program of academic study. For example, students can choose to build their academic journey from bits and pieces acquired through traditional majors. Ultimately, the student is directly in charge of chartering their own academic journey.<br>The Bachelor of Integrated Studies required 30 hours of research within their expressed field of study. The BIS Senior Project mandated a total of 6 hours for which to complete the final digital portfolio project. The author designed, created, and implemented a weekly plan of action to aid in the success of the student. Beyon
