There are Course 5 final projects waiting to be watched. There are Course 4 final project ideas waiting for feedback. When you need a short break from end of the year activities, check out #COETAIL on Twitter or the COETAIL feed.

Below is a guide to clarifying & probing questions and warm & cool feedback. I love this community and can’t wait to see all the great things happening from the current and recently graduated COETAIL-ers!
