5 4.0 Tutorials — Optimising Tutorial Sessions

4.0 Tutorials — Optimising Tutorial Sessions

To assist you in this course, the appointed tutor will conduct five tutorials. Each tutorial is two hours long and is held during weekends. Tutorials are face-to-face sessions that enable you to exchange ideas and experiences and also initiate contact with others. This will benefit you.

Note: These sessions complement distance learning materials and are not intended to replace them in the form of lectures. In this course, the primary means of learning is through WOU course materials, textbooks and online references.

Preparing for tutorials

In order to benefit fully from a tutorial, complete the readings and various activities for the topics you learn. You are also advised to prepare the answers to the assigned case studies so that you can participate meaningfully in the tutorial discussions. Time has been allocated in the study schedule for this.


The appointed tutors will:

•  Conduct tutorials.

•  Assess students’ TMA answer scripts.

•  Be available at designated times for online consultation and by telephone (if necessary) with students.

Tutors are your first point of contact with WOU. If you need any information or have any problems, please speak to the tutors before contacting the Course Coordinator.
