Blog7 - Use of senior students in effective conduction of Tutorial classes

 

Tutorials are normally conducted for a small class of students. But this requires many tutorial slots when the class strength is large. This is time consuming and resource intensive.  We thought of conducting tutorials in the right spirit with the available resources. For the effective conduction of tutorials, the entire class is divided into several groups based on the intelligence level of students. The group size may vary depending on the class strength. Students are grouped such that slow learners are put into one group so that more attention can be given to such groups in making them understand the concepts. As it is not possible for a single faculty to give good attention to each group, the idea of utilizing senior bright students as tutors was conceptualized. Senior students were motivated to volunteer as tutors, as this was an opportunity for them to improve their skills. The time table is framed in such a way that senior students are free to conduct the tutorials without affecting their regular classes.

 

The students’ understanding and performance has shown significant improvement. Also senior students are benefitted with more understanding of the course and good interaction with juniors, also a sense of doing a service to students and department.
