Today we started off by going over how research will be conducted this year, followed that up by announcing this year's Research Captains and the research groups for ICDA II, and finished up with a quick speaking game for the novices.
How to Research:
At the start of the meeting, Michelle and Tim had everyone access a couple of files on Dropbox to teach how to research from. If you weren't at the meeting or just want a refresher, be sure to look at that!
Also, please realize that research this year (both the timeliness of research submissions and overall research quality) will be an important factor that will be considered heavily when making the roster, so be sure to familiarize yourself with the research format we use so that your research can be as good as possible.
Research Captains and Research Groups for ICDA II:
After covering how research should be done, we announced this year's Research Captains. Congrats to everyone who was selected!
The following Google Doc is a listing of research groups for ICDA II, with the Research Captains being listed as the first entry in every group. Research groups will change for every tournament, and bill assignments will be made on Thursday.
