Focus Points: The Role of the Tutor While Students are Working in Groups - Interview with Gareth James

In this interview (audio only), Gareth explains how finds small group work a good way of diagnosing students’ problems with the material. He describes how he sees his role as one of guiding students rather than giving them the answers.

When working with students in small groups, you are able to give assistance to students where needed. You may need to think about how you will extend groups who are working well, as they may finish more quickly than other groups and get bored.
