Section 2, Activity 4
This thread is for section 2, activity 4
A tutor has recently taken on a cohort of 20 students for a particular module. Most of the students in the cohort have studied with the OU. However, there are a few students that whilst having not studied for a number of years, they have also never studied with the OU. After a recent online tutorial combined with poor TMA results, the tutor has become concerned that these students are starting to disengage with their module.
Using the bullet points from section 2.6, what two steps do you think the tutor can take to get the students back on track with their studies? Also briefly describe one or two other methods that can perhaps be used in combination with the chosen steps.
Have a look at some other discussions. Do you agree with the other posts?
These are examples of the types of posts we might expect to see:
"Encouraging students - further individual engagement with students through email or perhaps phone in order to provide support."
"Feeding forward and determining mid to long-term goals – this could perhaps be carried out through feedback in the TMAs and, in particular, through summary feedback that is returned with each marked TMA, as well as through individual conversation. "
