17 What WE Expect From YOU 1.Collaborative learning Working in groups Working in groups 2.Class participation Showing up and doing the work 3.Time Remember hours/ wk. is plenty when working together: 4 x 17 =68 hours per week? 4.Effort Effort

18 Working in Groups n Complementary Skills and Roles n Competency n Commitment n Communication Communication

19 Schedule Monday:1:00-1:50Lecture I Tuesday:1:00-1:50Lecture II Wednesday:1:00-2:50Lab I Thursday:1:00-1:50Lab II Friday:1:00-1:50 Presentations Quiz & Evaluations

20 Grading Distribution n Deliverables (50 %) –Reports –Oral Presentation n Weekly Examination (25 %) n Final Exam (25%)

21 The Written Report n Work together n Length is not important –Fulfill the requirements (B.S takes time to write !) n How should it sound? –Read a technical report (How does it sound?) n How should it look? –PROFESSIONAL

22 The Oral Presentation n Graded on basic elements and effectiveness of style n Tomorrow’s Session (Prof. Wittels) Presenting styles cannot be taught... They must be observed and developed.

23 Weekly Quiz n Individual Effort n minutes n Stresses concepts of the week n Do the reading!

24 How to do well in this class n Be patient in learning new concepts –The hardest part n Work efficiently together n Ask questions 8How do I do this problem? (not answered) 4I did this, what do you think? n Get it done.

25 How to do well in this class n Check the course web-age daily

26 And now …... n Form Teams for tomorrow’s session (4 students per group) and also for next week’s lab “What makes a presentation an effective presentation?”
