Briefly discuss your experience this week. Some ideas follow but you don’t have to answer all the questions. Did you learn something interesting? Was there something confusing in the lesson that you had to look up? If so, what was it? Did you have any issues installing the tools? Was it too much or too little work? Anything to add to it to make it better for the next round of students? Anything else you’d like to discuss about this week’s lesson?
