In signature work, a student uses his or her cumulative learning to pursue a significant project related to a problem he or she defines with support and guidance from faculty and mentors. While many institutions highlight signature work in capstone projects, focused curriculum review by a number of institutions has shown that for students to be successful in capstone opportunities, they need opportunities to develop and practice the skills and knowledge they have acquired. This work is part of AAC&U’s Signature Work initiative, funded by the Davis Educational Foundation.

In this webinar, administrative and faculty leaders from three institutions will share models and insights into the process their institutions took to integrate signature work opportunities into the curriculum.
