Enabling Technology


A list of things to do better next time I offer this class.

  • More discussion! We had 2 really good discussions on blackboard. Perhaps after every guest speaker or new topic?
  • Provide a time for them to talk about the books they read. I planned to do it at the beginning of class but didn’t follow through.
  • Plan for public demos from the beginning. Apply for a course enhancement grant to support it.
  • Encourage writing papers on projects from the beginning.
  • The teams combining grads with undergrads appear to have worked fine. Next time emphasize their mentoring role to the grad students.
  • Give more feedback during the course, perhaps some graded assignments relative to their projects.
