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
Names of students should be listed next to the objectives they are responsible for.
Address questions instructor raised in prior week.
Summary of sponsor’s feedback from previous meeting
Concerns and questions
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.
