Tips From TAs:

  1. If presenting, arrive at least 15 minutes ahead to get set up.
  2. If using technology, try out the computer/projector/presentation at least two days before.  Don't expect a lot of time to set up on presentation day.  Use Syllabus link to Room Schedule.
  3. If using technology, have at least two independent ways to get at your presentation (ex. email attachment, Zoo drive, Flash Drive, google drive, dropbox)
