Students should develop a plan for their project, this is crucial for monitoring progress. A Gantt chart, for example, could be used with clear markers for milestones or deliverables.
Meetings with the students are essential to monitoring progress. A clear agenda should be set prior to the meeting. The agenda should contain items such as:
Progress since last meeting; Challenges encountered; Action plan; Date of next meeting
Action plans can be set as SMART goals
Keeping a record of the meeting is encouraged. Progress can be monitored in this way and potential problems can be picked up.
