>Final Project Theme for Winter 2009 :
Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education
In 1987 Chickering & Gamson published the Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education. These principles are based on the perspective that the goal of a proper undergraduate education should be active, cooperative, and challenging.
For the final project, each project group will address one of the Principles listed. In addition to the general global social and technology issues described in the Final Project guidelines, consider these theme-specific questions. How can computers and the internet be used for including the Principles in college education? Include examples of assignments, activities and technologies to support your recommendations.
