18th December We need to start planning for tutor workshops Next year – put the results from the questionnaire into action What do we want to focus on? Teaching styles Teaching methods What do we like about tutor time? Good Gives you time to prepare Good for relaxing before lessons You can talk to people It’s fun Bad The year groups don’t mix – there is separation You are forced to do activities you don’t want to Not many people show up especially sixth formers Activities are not updated frequently enough It can be boring How could we improve tutor time? Make it more inclusive – get more people involved Have not as many uear groups in a tutor group More interesting activities The library is too noisy, and people mess around. It distracts people who actually want to work, and the librarians often are not treated with as much respect as the teachers. We don’t like that you’re not allowed to be in classrooms in cold lunchtimes. Teaching styles Different subjects have to have different teaching methods. Some of our favourite teaching styles: Little chunks of information at a time Discussions Worksheets Questions Videos Active and inactive work in one lesson Projects Can everyone ask their tutors to brainstorm how they like to be taught, then do some sort of ranking activity i.e. what is the best way to be taught. Speak to Student Development committee about tutor time activities?
