Weekly Meetings with Instructor

The meetings with the instructor are for the benefit of the team, and a well prepared team gets the most out of these meetings. Prepare an 8 minute presentation that include:

  • Concise overview of project and objectives (1 minute)

  • Progress from last week

  • Objectives for next week

  • Address questions instructor raised in prior week.

  • Summary of sponsor’s feedback from previous meeting

  • Concerns and questions

Good Practices

    • Clear figures with labels (most slides should have a relevant image)

    • Analysis should describe assumptions made and methods used

    • Important numerical values should be included whenever possible

    • Notes should be taken during the meeting

    • After the meeting share the presentation and instructor comments with the sponsor

Note: On weeks of oral presentations there are no team meetings with instructors.
