The timeline below serves as a suggested guide for group organization and student deliverables over a 26 week semester.

MacEngaged in Two Semesters

The timeline below serves as a suggested guide for student deliverables after completion of a MacEngaged project during a prior semester. First refer to MacEngaged in One Semester before reading/using content provided in this section. Feel free to incorporate some/all of this content and/or organization into your course.

The two-semester format simply allows for students to remain involved with their project from the previous semester by updating it in term 2 (i.e., lessons learned from implementation in term 1.)

Students will edit/update their SOW by including a section titled ‘Version 2.0: Lessons Learned & Moving Forward’ which will contain a description of how the group plans to improve delivery of their project based on past experience.

The documents provided in this timeline have been adapted from Psych 2NF3: Basic & Clinical Neuroscience (Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour, McMaster University). Please edit them based on scope of your course assignment.
