In preparing for class, set up at least one lab computer with all the software you expect to use and complete assignments and labs yourself right before your students do them. This lets you see any problems that might arise.

  • It can be easy to lose sight of how lab instructions can get confusing and where your students will get stuck on a problem set.
  • By completing assignments close to when your students do, you’ll be well prepared to help them when they get stuck or confused.
  • Having teaching assistants (TAs/T.A.s) complete assignments is a great way to make sure they are prepared for your class.
