Do not be afraid of silence after asking a question- allow students to think about the question
and then respond
Do not ask too many details about the assignments, but focus primarily on student reflection
about the Health Mentors, teamwork and take home points
Do not feel the need to stick too tightly to the instructions if the conversations among teams or a
large group is going in a positive direction
Do not sit for the entire IPE small group sessions, but feel free to move around, listen and
become engaged in team/group conversations.
