I will assign project teams; however, I will do so with input from students. In order to provide this input, by the date in the sidebar you will send me a Slack message with the following information:
- A brief explanation of the technical, HCI, and design skills that
you have that you think might be relevant for this class. These
should be skills that you are particularly confident in. The purpose
of this requirement is for me to understand how to balance teams
based on skills as well as preference. As an example, you might send
me something like:
- Java: I’ve used Java for three semesters and know how to write basic Android applications.
- The names of any students in the class who you particularly want to work with, and the reasons that you want to work with each of them.
- The names of any students in the class who you particularly do not want to work with, and the reasons that you don’t want to work with each of them.
I will keep these names and reasons completely confidential, but will take them into account when forming groups. The main thing that I will take into account is a balance between technical and design skills.
Note: please don’t ask me why I formed your group in the way I formed it. I won’t tell you.
