TA: Tracking participant progress in a workshop

If you are leading a workshop and the participants are working on laptops, try using sticky notes as a way to gauge where everyone is in the process of completing the assigned task.   UCLA teacher Miriam Posner, in A better way to teach technical skills to a group, describes how assigning students to small groups combined with the sticky note strategy serves her students well.   This could easily be adapted for work not on computers.

Additional ideas are on Hacker News in the responses to the Posner blog post.
