Guide identifying important areas of theory and practice around tutoring in small to medium groups (up to 30 members).
To tutor (v.) gives you an opportunity to really get to grips with your own understanding of your discipline, and to help others discover their understanding. Experience and understanding gained in tutoring can help you in your post-university career as you lead teams or support development opportunities in the workplace.
Think about it: tutorials are a part of every student’s experience. Think back on the ones you have attended.
No, seriously – think back.
What was the worst tutorial you ever attended? What was the best? What made them so? How did they (and others like them or others that were just 'okay') affect your experience of being a student?
Tutorials can make a difference. Not all of that is the tutor’s responsibility – the students, the lecturer, the administration staff, the maintenance and technical staff, they all play a role; but as tutor you can create the opportunities and the space for students to engage with ideas, concepts and information in such a way that they (and you) will come to know things differently.
This guide won't make the difference – you will.
