Workplace Scenario

Frequently, throughout our careers we will be asked to give feedback to others to help them improve what they are doing. Being able to provide constructive, useful, and thorough critique improves the performance of your team, reflects positively upon you, and builds good rapport with your colleagues.

Team Size

3

Additional Information

This assignment can be scaled to larger teams with a minimum of 3 per team.

The technical skill varies on this skill, because practically any technical skill can be demonstrated by the student lecturer. Keep in mind that that the student presentation is only 3 minutes long so the subject matter must be scaled so that it can be presented effectively in 3 minutes or less.

This assignment can also be used for other courses other than CS1.
