While faculty recognize capstones as vital high-impact practices, questions linger over their purpose and the structures required to support equitable implementation. Faculty stories emerging from our multi-institutional study highlight not only the importance of institution-wide conversations that promote understanding of and investment in the capstone, but also power dynamics that deter instructors from initiating conversations about unclear goals and workload inequities. Our asynchronous, interactive session guides participants through scenarios where they navigate these tensions as an instructor, department chair, or educational developer. These storylines--drawn from our research findings--are accompanied by heuristics designed to promote significant, intersecting conversations across institutional contexts.
