"The change of requirements that I use are dependent on the group. In the morning (when I usually do this), the group is still working through understanding the idea of encapsulation regarding the topology. Bringing in a change in the world…"

"Hi, Steven, This is an interesting idea. The difficulty, I would think, is that there would still be an original member of the pair. So, the assumptions and explanation of the code could be conveyed. Definitely try it. Before the session, though,…"

Intra-Session Pair Swap

Any thoughts or experience of doing a pair swap in about 30 minutes into the session as a facilitator?What I am thinking is that as a facilitator who is walking around and seeing what languages the pair are working on, grabbing one member of a pair and explicitly having him swap spots with another pair.  I am thinking that this would be done across a number of different pairs, and this would be an test to see how expressive and intent revealing the code they wrote in the first 30 minutes was by…See More
