Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The goal of the 2010 Capstone Design Conference held in Boulder, CO in June 2010 was to build upon the success of the inaugural 2007 conference and grow the community of educators, students, and industry members to discuss, analyze, and improve capstone design education. Focused around the primary theme of capstone pedagogy, the 2010 Capstone Design Conference was intentionally designed to promote vibrant and extensive sharing of ideas and experiences across the capstone community, through interactive panel and poster sessions, short courses, and working groups. This editorial discusses the conference planning, structure, and feedback. The subsequent papers in this issue document some of the outcomes of the conference, highlighting best papers and selected panel discussions.
