Senior Year Research Project II
A continuation of Senior Year Research Project I, Senior Year Research Project II enables students to continue work on the project. Students in SYRP II typically work on finishing research, data analysis, synthesis of information, and/or production. In addition, students create a tangible product as well as a professional presentation or workshop for the public. The product will vary according to the focus and intention of the research project. The presentation can range from a talk for the community, a workshop for a related class or an outside audience, or a professional conference. Project outcomes can range from business plans to nonfiction narratives to artwork to a proposed curriculum to a scientific research paper. In all cases, the projects are meant to be publically accessible and be consistent with Sterling College’s focus on experiential learning and meaningful, relevant learning outcomes. Students set learning goals and assessment criteria, which will be evaluated over the course of the semester.
