After preparing for your project, take the following steps to kick it off:
Plan a virtual meeting between yourself and the student team. The educator may want to be in attendance.
Schedule regular (e.g. weekly, bi-weekly) check-ins with the students to monitor their progress and address any questions. Decide where you prefer to meet (Zoom, Google Meet, etc.).
Let students know what communication channels you prefer.
Follow up with the students if you do not hear back from them.
Make sure the students understand the project scope. The project can be updated and revised. If you add a FAQ or resource to the project, students who have started the project will be automatically alerted.
