  1. Thanks Ryan for posting these notes. Please make a few revisions:

    1) Can you link to the presenter’s final project posts on the OpenLab (for reference)?

    2) We discussed the peer review handouts for the presentations, and how people should actively listen, take notes during the presentations, ask questions during Q&A, and submit this work to me at the end of each class (an important part of participation grade).

    3) There was an important announcement about the Final Course Reflection (worth 5% of the final course grade): I extended the deadline to Saturday, 4pm to give people extra time to work on it.

    4) We are having an end-of-the-semester celebration on Thursday in class, so if you feel like you want to contribute, feel free to bring in some snacks/refreshments for folks.

    • Just updated my post but I can’t seem to find Kelz’s presentation. I’m not sure if I’m not looking in the wrong places but I managed to find everyone else’s posts in the presentation tag.
