2. You'll be giving a chalk talk on a technical paper in early November (see assignment description if curious). We usually provide you with a list of about 10 papers, and each student in a section chooses one. This term, we are trying something new - we are soliciting some paper suggests from you. It must be a paper that isn't covered in a core Course 6 class. Feel free to email me a paper suggestion by noon Oct 16; if yours is chosen, then you will get first dibs for presenting that paper.
The first one takes place tomorrow, and to help you better choose which workshops to attend this term, descriptions for the workshops offered this term are available.
The first assignment, the video self introduction, is due tomorrow, Monday, by 11:59pm. Don't wait until the last minute to upload!
For Wednesday's lecture, please read the following:
Office Hours this week will be tomorrow, Monday from 3pm-5pm (location 26-328)
Lecture 1 is Wed Sep 5 at 10am in 32-123. Before lecture, please read:
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 and give your spot to someone else.
Can't make any open recitation or develop a recitation conflict? 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.
This website is being prepared for the new semester.
6.UAT is open to both undergraduate and graduate students; for the former, it 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.
