Our paper “Effects of Service-Learning Projects on Capstone Student Motivation” has been accepted into the Multidisciplinary Engineering Division for ASEE 2018. Co-authors are Dr. Mark Budnik (Valparaiso), Dr. Randi Shedlosky (YCP), and Dr. Jeff Will (Valparaiso). The paper examines student motivation differences in service and non-service capstone projects. A pre-print of the paper can be found here and and the presentation slides here. The abstract in included below:
Many engineering programs incorporate project-based, service learning into traditional classes and capstone experience.
