“The Culminating Moment”: Capstone
ePortfolios in the Lives of Community College Students
Capstone, LaGuardia Community College

A carousel featuring ePortf olios from the Liberal Arts, Education, Accounting and Engineering will highlight the ways in
which ePortf olio supports students’ integrative learning and
reflection, and facilitates the culmination of their educational experiences at the college as they prepare to transition to a four year college or professional experience.

Transcript

  • 1. By: H. Delcham [email_address] April 30, 2010
  • 2. Engineering Science
    • Joint Program with CCNY
    • Primarily Transfer Program (students must transfer to receive a BS degree in Engineering)
    • Areas of concentration are Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering Science.
    • We offer five engineering courses
    • Two engineering laboratory courses.
    • One course in engineering mechanics-statics.
  • 3.
    • Electrical circuits course.
    • And Thermodynamics (Capstone)
    • Before Capstone
    • Regular lecture course with two midterms, a final and a final research project
  • 4. CTL Seminar & Support
    • Engaging Year-Long Seminar with Facilitators(L. Clark, C. Kaspasky, and B. Eynon)
    • STM Support and Capstone Studio Hour
    • As a result
    • Developed staged assignments such that students must use multi disciplinary perspectives (math, physics, chemistry, circuit theory, social science and English) to link the concepts learned to real-world issues.
  • 5. Stages
    • Thermo Stage I
    •  
    • Your dear friend was reading an article in the paper and came across the words “zeroth law of thermodynamics” in the context of the article. Knowing that you are currently taking thermodynamics, your friend came to you and asked you to explain to him the zeroth law of thermodynamics.
    • Describe in your own words the zeroth law of thermodynamics
    • Provide details including tools, pictorials etc. that you would use to help your friend understand.
    • What are the implications of this law? (1-2 pages)
  • 6.
    • Thermo Stage II
    •  
    • We have discussed the zeroth law (zeroth law implies thermal equilibrium) and first law ( 1 st law implies conservation of energy) of thermodynamics. Currently, the world is experiencing a crisis in energy and environment. What are the main sources of energy that we use in our society? Describe, how the use of energy in our daily lives impacts our environment? Use the concepts of thermodynamics (energy, heat, work done, conversion of energy, etc) to explain the effects of our use of energy. (1-2 pages)
  • 7.
    • Thermo Stage III
    • We have discussed the concepts of energy conversion, heat and energy transfers. These concepts of thermodynamics are also applied to some aspects of biological systems such as food and exercise, reactions in cells, etc. Using the aforementioned concepts, write a 1-2 page research paper describing how these thermodynamics concepts are related biological systems. Give specific examples. (1-2 pages)
  • 8.
    • Thermo Stage IV
    •  
    • Choose one of the following topics: air pollution, refrigerants (i.e. R-12, R-134a, etc), air conditioning, and engines. Discuss its impact (environmental, social, economic) on society. Be sure to relate the topic to thermodynamics concepts discussed in class. (1-2 pages)
  • 9.
    • Thermo Stage V
    •  
    • There are three principal sources for mass production of electricity: hydroelectric, coal, and nuclear plant. Describe the process/method (from a thermodynamics point of view) used (for each source) to generate electricity.
    • What are the similarities and differences between each?
    • What are some of the environmental impacts resulting from using each source of energy?
    • Based on your research, which method is more environmentally friendly?
  • 10. Final Research Paper
    • Students must choose from a list topics
    • They must incorporate staged assignments into their final paper
  • 11. Other Activities for ePortfolio
    • Reflection on:
    • Joint activities with CCNY (Orientation/ Registration)
    • Transfer workshops
    • Career Fair and Seminars
    • Key courses in the program

    • SELF AND ACADEMIC GROWTH
    • SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
    • INTEGRATION OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE
  • 37. “ It all begins with change. From the slightest difference that might seem rather ordinary to changes that may reverberate for years to come, it all begins with one action.” Anthony L.
    • “ Portfolios are students’ own stories of what they know, why they believe they know it, and why others should be of the same opinion.”
    • Pearl and Leon Paulson
  • 38. ePortfolios
    • Provide students with opportunities to reflect on the meaning of their college experience.
  • 39.  
  • 40. Jennifer L.
    • “ Some of the characteristics of an educated person are the ability to be able to interact with different groups of people with ease and to be knowledgeable about a variety of topics. I believe that the constant desire for knowledge and betterment of  oneself is what helps develop these characteristics.”
  • 41. THE REFLECTIVE CYCLE
    • “… teachers can, through a structured process of reflection, become present—to see student learning: to discern, differentiate, and describe the elements of learning, to analyze and respond … ‘intelligently.’ ”
    • Carol R. Rodgers
    • “ The convergence of text graphics, sound, and video in an ePortfolio allow me to be witness to my students’ evolving selves and to appreciate their personal and academic experiences in a way that it transforms my pedagogies and understanding of whom they are.”
    • Max R.
  • 42. Asif S.
    • “ Pursuing a career as  in Emergency Medical Technology (EMT) never crossed my mind until I was doing my internship at the One-Hundred Tenth precinct. My initial career goal was to become a NYPD police officer. However as I spend time at the internship, I realized NYPD may not be right career choice for me… Afterward I  spoke with my guidance counselor and with her guidance iIdecided to pursue EMT  as a career. I want a career where I can help people and  would be in demand when I graduate.  Therefore, I feel EMT  is the career I can picture myself doing.”
