The Bachelor of Education Capstone Project is a culminating experience designed to provide the students with an opportunity to demonstrate synthesis of knowledge, practice, and skills developed throughout the program of study. The Capstone Project allows students to pursue, in depth, an independent project of the student’s own choosing in the area of education or one of their teaching areas, under the close supervision of a faculty advisor. This may take the form of an academic paper or project including thematic units, curriculum resources or a subject related portfolio. The paper shall incorporate one or more NWT cross-cultural education themes. The project approach to Capstone will reflect Dene Kede or Inuuqatigiit. While the project/paper provides invaluable preparation for graduate or professional work, the primary rewards are intrinsic: the opportunity to follow one’s curiosity, to take ownership of a work and see it through to a successful conclusion, the intellectual and creative pleasure of independent learning, and the invaluable mentorship by one’s advisor.
