I. Announcements: Preparing for Next Week
- Next week: Come prepared to talk with your colleagues about your final decisions about your final project.
- Give us a progress update and as many details as you can. Show us something (video, handout)... something concrete, as if you are a classroom teacher, not merely a graduate student. Expect to give a 5-minute overview of your plans, goals, and visions.
- Reminder: Those taking the course for 2 credits will have to decide at their own discretion if they will do this assignment based on oral exam needs, dissertation needs, etc.
- Food? Allergies? Red Wine? White wine (won't be chilled)?
