More Recitations
If you cannot get into a section, don't forget to fill out the wiki so we know which hours are in high demand. We will try to create new sections at those times, and Tony will move students into those sections by order of appearance in the wiki ( those students will be emailed).

@Seniors - make sure you select a recitation before they fill up.

If you are in a recitation and drop 6.UAT, let Tony know. If you miss R1+R2 (and we don't hear from you), we'll assume you dropped.

Can't make any open recitation? Then (1)add your name to the clearinghouse wiki and (2) temporarily attend any section that fits your schedule. If you are not officially in a section by Week 3, you may have to defer 6.UAT.

Welcome to 6.UAT, Spring 2018!

This website is being prepared for the new semester. This course is open to both undergraduate and graduate students; for the former, this is best taken in the sophomore spring or junior year (prerequisites are some technical coursework and some technical project under your belt) so that you have time to apply what you've learned in your coursework. The course will (1) encourage you to think about effective oral technical communication, and (2) equip you with communication skills necessary to succeed in a professional technical academic/industry setting. The course provides opportunities to practice your skills and mechanisms for feedback to strengthen them.

I took 6.UAT in the fall of 2016, and I honestly wish I had taken it earlier. Some people I knew had scared me into thinking that it was a "tough" or "uninteresting" class because you don't learn anything "technical", and I regret listening to them because I ended up acquiring skills through 6.UAT that no other technical class at MIT could have taught me. - 6.UAT Alum, Class of 2017
