11:00 AM: Experiential Learning Thru Capstones: Opportunities and Challenges

The workshop (cross-listed from the New Jersey Big Data Alliance conference, and hosted by Princeton University) will highlight the partnership between universities and industry necessary to provide experiential opportunities to the students in the form of Capstone courses. Capstone courses are an integral part of the culminating experience of academic programs. These are immensely helpful opportunities for the students to prepare for careers in the industry. Experiential learning is learning by doing. Doing high-impact learning practices requires substantial student participation and effective faculty advising. Employers and hiring managers value college candidates with experiential learning across individual disciplines in real or very like real-world settings. An approach that has worked effectively is to involve the industry stakeholders in defining the problem scope and working closely with them for the accomplishment of the students’ deliverables.

The workshop will cover research on experiential learning and how its unique characteristics lends itself for capstone courses in business. We will share experiences of successful partnerships, what works and what does not, issues and challenges, and lessons learned. The role and responsibilities of the students in deriving the best out of such experiences will also be covered.

Workshop leaders: Rashmi Jain, Montclair State University; Adam Spunberg, AB InBev

Student Projects track: graduate students attending an institution of higher education may submit a project proposal to be featured during this workshop track. More information can be found on the Student Research page and the communication server on Discord. Project proposals are due on April 5.

1:15 PM: Mentorship Best Practices: A Conversation

A major component of many careers - both within and beyond the academy - is mentoring trainees, yet graduate students often don't have formal opportunities to develop mentoring expertise. Since mentoring profoundly affects the well-being of individuals and teams, and consequently, scientific productivity and success, Drs. Niv and Murray designed the first-ever for-credit graduate course on mentoring at Princeton. While there is no magic formula, there are evidence-based best practices for mentoring, as well as field-tested ways to develop a reflective and inclusive personal style. In this session, they will share their insights into mentoring best practices, and you’ll hear from current graduate students in the course on their experiences.
