Techniques for increasing situational awareness
Authors recommend assigning a technical task that requires students from distinct technical courses to coordinate. This involves creating a task for two or more different technical classes and then requiring students to form teams, meet, and coordinate the technical aspects of the work. The researchers found this approach can build skills around processes of team formation and coordinating deliverable schedules.
