EDLT 491 Senior Project I 3.0 Credits

The Senior Project courses (EDLT 491, 492, 4933) are a set of three courses intended to immerse student teams in the design, implementation, and evaluation of a substantial project. Most educational design research involves teams in their creation, so it is essential to develop those skills. Students collaborate on an extended project to better understand project and time management issues related to large design projects. The courses also facilitate students' integrating materials from other courses in service of better learning environments.
