In another module, I have just finished a round of tutorial classes. I structured it as follows: 1st hr: provided a worksheet that essentially summarized the lectures with blanks for them to fill in. 2nd hr. Discuss tutorial questions. By the time the 1st hour was over, the students were complaining about how they found it difficult, even with the lecture notes in front of them. The worksheet even told them which page to look at. Hmm, I really wonder how lectures can be made more effective. It was really heart-wrenching to see them struggle with a simple-freebody diagram, that had been illustrated over and over again during the lectures. I'm not the lecturer concerned, just a tutor engaged for this module. Subject: Mechanics of Materials. Profile of students: working adults - attending lectures in the evening. tutorials on saturday.
