CIS*3750 Lab Slide Deck

During my second contract as a Teaching Assistant for CIS*3750 Systems Analysis & Design in Application, I was tasked with designing the teaching curriculum for labs for the class of ~150 students. Most of the labs involved activities, questions, open forums and time to work within teams, but I built this deck of slides to keep my on track each week.
