70 Activities for Tutor Groups
The pressure on contact time with students and the results required from it are constantly increasing - which means that tutors have to be more and more creative in how they approach their work. This book provides some solutions. 70 Activities for Tutor Groups explores the many and varied ways in which tutors can provoke and encourage meaningful, constructive and focused discussion among their students. It takes the form of a classified and cross-referenced manual of groupwork activities. For ease of use each activity is presented in a common format: âe¢ In a nutshell âe¢ Aims âe¢ What is needed âe¢ Time needed âe¢ How it works âe¢ Good example in action âe¢ Diagram âe¢ Advantages of this activity âe¢ Potential problem(s) âe¢ Main learning outcome âe¢ Variation. The practical, 'low-tech' approach taken by Peter Davies means that these activities (which have all been trialled and are known to work) can be used easily by all tutors, at any level, and in any subject. If you are committed to improving the effectiveness of your work with groups you need look no further!
