A global capstone project course in the age of coronavirus pandemic: Learning from the ME310 ReGlove case
Engineering educations deploy capstone courses as a way of supporting students’ transition into the engineering profession. This paper presents a global collaborative product development project affected by several constraints due to the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. The paper analyses the students’ journey, as they navigated the final part of the project, drawing on learnings for the coaching cohort to support projects with similar levels of autonomy. The analysis uses a hunter-gatherer model to analyze the journey of iterations in search of a meaningful problem to solve. By utilizing this type of tool the supporting cohort can maintain a dialogue about the journey towards a vision and having a foundation of when to nudge, when to push back, and when to refrain from involving in their work.
