In the Open University, a tutorial is one of the few occasions where students can meet with each other and engage in a shared learning experience. Most students, however experienced they are in OU ...learning techniques, welcome the opportunity to meet with their tutor and other OU students. The Open University places great emphasis on active learning. Effective learners are able to process ideas, apply concepts and solve problems rather than receiving learning material passively. Tutorials provide an important opportunity for you to do this. This session gives you an opportunity to discuss how you can work with your tutor to create and facilitate a learning environment in which you can engage actively and purposefully with your module materials through face-to-face and online tutorials. The session also provides you with a realistic idea of what to expect from your tutor and how the student, tutor relationship fits into your broader degree studies.
