Final Course Project

(20% of Course Grade) The grand project that the class as a whole will work on is to develop a plan for a peer mentoring program on Campus. There will be a project wiki where the plan is housed or some other technology that we choose together. The instructor will work on the gateway part of this site. Students are invited to contribute, but their contributions here won’t be graded. Students in their teams will be assigned subsidiary projects. One such project, for example, is to work through the argument whether an effective peer mentoring program can be implemented entirely through voluntary contributions of the mentors. The subsidiary projects will be evaluated on the basis of the sort of evidence that can be brought to bear to address the issue, the way the issue is framed, and the quality of the argument to support the plan.
