Tutors Reflect: a discussion paper

Paulin, S. and Davis, J. (2004) Tutors Reflect: a discussion paper. In: Teaching and Learning Forum 2004, 9 - 10 February 2004, Murdoch University, Murdoch, W.A


Part-time casual tutors play an important role in the effective delivery of university education. A peer-based skills development forum allowed us to reflect collectively on the key issues for maintaining and improving the quality of tutorial based education. The importance of tutoring experience for postgraduate students is affirmed. The quality of education through tutorials can be improved through attention to recruitment and training of a cadre of tutors, peer based skills development and developing skills for teaching students of non-English speaking background.
