Where did C4 come from?

C4 was dreamed up by the York Capstone Network in 2018 and was pilot tested in 2019. Learn more about how we came to be below.

The C4 Origin Story

A Space Engineering professor (Franz Newland) and a Dance Studies professor (Danielle Robinson) walk into New Faculty Orientation…This is not the beginning of a joke, but the genesis of C4: The Cross-Campus Capstone Classroom.  

Danielle and Franz ended up chatting about their capstone students, and how creating collaborative projects where their students could work together would be a really exciting way for them to appreciate their own skills and those of others, while tackling real challenges in the world. Not long after this meeting, Franz and Danielle founded the York Capstone Network to foster a strong capstone community at York. At the very first meeting of this group, those present continued imagining a unique interdisciplinary capstone classroom that could stretch across campus, bringing them and their students together to work on complex, real-world challenges. This conversation would eventually become C4: The Cross-Campus Capstone Classroom. 

Such dreams require time and money, so the first step was applying for support from the York University Faculty Association’s Teaching and Learning Fellowship program and York’s Academic Innovation Fund, as well as directly from the Associate Vice President, Teaching and Learning. They also require some sanity-checking, so an important step was reaching out to the founders of Guelph’s ICON (Ideas Congress) who generously shared their experiences creating an interdisciplinary, project-based classroom of their own. Finally, they require staff assistance, which was provided by the Lassonde School of Engineering, a Renaissance engineering centre that understands the central role interdisciplinarity plays in not only engineering training but also making the world a better place. 

With these important  supports in place, during the summer of 2019, a small group within the York Capstone Network began fleshing out C4’s pilot test design–Natasha May (Science/ Teaching Commons), Carolyn Steele (Liberal Arts/Career Center), Alice Kim (Health), Kai Zhuang (Engineering), and Bridget Cauthery (Dance). Together with Danielle and Franz, they became the Leadership Team, which was further augmented by Dana Craig (Libraries) and Danielle Dobney (Health) as well as our amazing TA from Environmental Studies, Benjamin Bongolan, and two dedicated research assistants, Meagan Veneracion (Film) and Elaine Balidio (Kinesiology). 

Together this team was driven by a commitment to create an interdisciplinary space for research-design projects that connect teams of students with “real-world” challenges that deliver social impact, and to bring high impact capstone experiences to as many students as possible.

The world is full of complex problems that can only be addressed sustainably, justly, equitably, and effectively by bringing together a broad range of perspectives.

Symposium Date

Spring 4-29-2021

This project explored the application of data science techniques to kinesiology research initiatives led by students. Statistical analysis is becoming increasingly popular in academic research due to the ease of use provided by modern technology. As a result, the field of data science is growing and its relevance in education is becoming more prominent. This project will explore the relevance of data science principles in a program of higher education.

To investigate this, I consulted 17 senior kinesiology students in their capstone project course. Each project collected its own data with which I was able to provide statistical insights to the relationship being studied. From these explorations I observed which data science techniques appeared most frequently in results production. I worked with each student to clean their data, perform statistical tests, and make meaningful conclusions from the numbers.

Many of the same techniques were used between projects despite their methodologies being completely different. Among the most common were procedures taught in introductory statistics courses. In particular, the Repeated Measures ANOVA was utilized to answer multiple research questions. These results indicate that real research questions are related in what techniques they require. This knowledge allows us to more effectively incorporate relevant research practices into a program’s course track.

Biographical Information about Author(s)

I am personally interested in the applications of Data Science principles in academic research. Because of this I joined the Kinesiology Department's senior research class to test my abilities in an unfamiliar subject area.

Kinesiology, BS

Effective Fall 2017, all students will be pursuing the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology.   Students enrolled in Movement Science prior to Fall 2017 have the option of completing the Movement Science degree or electing to follow the Kinesiology degree.  Students who elect to remain on the Movement Science curriculum should consult their advisor for specific questions about their concentration.

The Kinesiology major’s theoretical and experiential approach enables students to develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for careers and graduate education in kinesiology, fitness, wellness, exercise science, and human performance. In addition, it provides students with the undergraduate degree and courses required for admission to graduate health professional education programs including, but not limited to, physical therapy, occupational therapy, chiropractics, biomechanics, exercise physiology, strength & conditioning, motor behavior, and athletic training.

Kinesiology students are provided with opportunities to shape and practice ethical behaviors relative to fitness and allied health professions. The goal of the experiential component is to provide students with an opportunity to develop “applied skills” and acquire best practices in a service-oriented manner. 

The Kinesiology major consists of a combination of classroom lectures, laboratory work, co-curricular activities, service-learning, and community outreach experiences. Students learn the most current technologies and techniques used in the profession and engage in experiential learning via course-embedded laboratory practice, service-learning, internships, and volunteer experiences. The students gain practical, workplace-ready skills, including: health and fitness appraisals, exercise testing and prescription, risk management, interpersonal communication, socio-cultural competency, and teamwork. Students are provided with opportunities to work with individuals of various ages and cultures, skill levels, fitness status, and physical capabilities.

Kinesiology are encouraged to participate in research and publication. While on campus, students have access to the Exercise Physiology and Movement Analysis Research Laboratories, and the Wellness and Recreation Center.

Upon graduation, students are expected to possess the professional knowledge, skills, values, dispositions, and experiences required in allied health professions where under-represented populations are not found in large numbers.


Kinesiology majors are required to complete a senior capstone project which permits students to select a research project or internship enabling them to apply their knowledge in a practical real-world setting.  Students are required to write an extensive report and to display their work in a final oral presentation.

Career options include, but are not limited to:

In addition, the curriculum provides students with an educational and experiential foundation that incorporates lecture, laboratory, practice, and service learning experiences to prepare them to meet requirements for admission to Allied Health Professional graduate programs, including, but not limited to:

Kinesiology Undergraduate Internships

The internship is the "capstone" experience for undergraduate Kinesiology students.  It should be an interesting, challenging, and enjoyable experience for all students. The internship allows the student to work and learn outside of the classroom at an approved site selected by the student. This program is designed to be a mutually beneficial experience and provide a practical, experiential learning environment for competent, energetic students. The internship will also extend a service to the cooperating site/facility by providing a new source of ideas, leadership, and potential candidates for employment.

The internship serves several purposes:
