Every GLLS student is required to be part of a team and carry-out a hands-on prototype initiative that connects the personal, relational, and systemic dimensions of change. Learning-by-doing is at the heart of Capstone Projects and design thinking is used as a core problem-solving methodology. Through the projects, students apply the knowledge, skills, methods and tools that they learned during the GLLS program on real life social or environmental challenges.
Project topics vary from reducing package waste across the campus to developing language learning programs for refugees. Project teams are constantly mentored throughout the process and are required to achieve clear project outcomes and deliverables at the end of every semester. Success of the projects is assessed through mentorship meetings and end-of semester presentations.
Student led Projects and details can be found on GLLS Medium Blog.
