I start a session by reminding students of the objectives and or learning outcomes. Announcement would have been made on Learnline about the topic and tutorial to be discussed, and any forthcoming assessments at the start of that week. A typical two (2) hours lesson will be broken-down as follows:
Activity Time (minutes)
Objectives and Introduction 10
Major theorems, axioms, concepts 20
Examples including applications 20
Example for students 25
Reflection and ending session 5
To fulfill the teaching philosophy stated above, I provide ample time for students to work through various examples on their own, both in class as well as the tutorial sessions. This approach helps in identifying individual student needs.
I use different conceptual strategies and different interpretation of concepts. I find the use of analogy, charts, diagrams to be particularly helpful, as they can relate concepts to real world events.
