Integrating Confidence within the Curriculum

Long-term projects tend to evaluate multiple course objectives by applying the core proficiencies of general education. However, students often procrastinate the planning and organizing steps associated with successful completion of the long-term project. One consideration for disengagement or procrastination stems from a student’s lack of confidence in their abilities to comprehend intent or content of the assignment. Where I define confidence as the “energy needed for transforming non-action into action,” this session illustrates how short-term planning – via segmented assignments – reinforces student learning outcomes and impacts student confidence in authentic and sustainable ways.
