Preparing for a Meeting
I look forward to meeting with you!
To make sure we use our time together as efficiently as possible, please write up a quarter-to-half page summary of what we'll be discussing before we meet. I've found from experience that this results in a far more effective use of our time.
Here are some examples of what this could look like
- If you're having trouble understanding something we covered in class or a homework problem, prepare a concise summary that describes your problem and references the relevant slides or solutions. The process of doing this will often help you get much closer to the solution before we even meet.
- If you're meeting to set the terms of an independent study, prepare a short summary of what you'd like the study to involve, and how you'd like to be assessed.
- If you're meeting to discuss careers in analytics prepare a summary of your past experiences, what you're hoping to find in your future career, and what you're hoping to get out of our meeting.
Once you've prepared this, please send me an email directly with your summary, and a full summary of your availability over the next week or two. Let me know as well whether you'd prefer to meet on zoom or in person if I can make it work. I'll then send a calendar invite with a time to meet.
Looking forward to chatting!
