Capacity take two

I had three undergrads and one grad student who were all wanting to do independent studies with me this semester, and usually I only supervise 1-2 of them, but I didn’t want to say no, and they were all working on speculative material in one form or another, so I ended up saying yes to all of them, but then putting together a working group.

We all met together about once a week and they read each others’ work and gave each other feedback, which made it more manageable for me time-wise, and according to our final check-in today, they found the extra critiques and conversation with the other students helpful. So win-win, and wanted to note it as a pedagogical strategy.

(I also had another undergrad who wasn’t doing speculative work, and I just met with him separately.)
