Week 14: Client Site Peer Critique and Team Conferences

Quinn WarnickWeekly Updates

I hope our peer critique exercise helped you identify some areas of improvement in your Best Practices Article. Next week, we’ll wrap up Unit #3 in order to focus solely on the Client Project until your final presentations. Both of our class sessions during Week 14 will be dedicated to that work. Here’s a summary of what we’ll be doing:

  • If you are taking Exam #2, it is due at the beginning of class on Tuesday. Please follow the instructions on the exam for submitting both print and electronic copies. We’ll use our entire class period to review and critique early drafts of your client sites, so be prepared to show your team’s site to the other members of our class and to a handful of special visitors (members of the oral history project team). Your site doesn’t need to be finished by Tuesday, but you should have more to show than a default WordPress theme.
  • Your Best Practices Article is due before you come to class on Thursday. Please follow the guidelines on the assignment sheet for submitting your article, and remember that you can publish your finished article on Medium.com if you’d like to. (If you’ve already decided to use Bootstrap or WordPress, don’t wory — those are both still good options.) During class, I will meet briefly with each team to discuss what you’ve done so far and what needs to happen during the final ten days of the semester. You’ll have the remainder of class to work on your client site as a team, so please come to class with a specific plan for what you want to accomplish.

If you’d like to meet with me individually about Unit #3, or as a team about Unit #4, please let me know. In addition to my regular office hours (T 2–5, W 9–12), I can make time to meet with you on Monday, Thursday, and Friday, if it would be helpful.
