Tutorials: Students doing the work 3

Another alternative method to encourage students to present in tutorials is to invite a student to write on the board with the twist that the other students have to provide the solution. The student at the board is merely an amanuensis.

This takes the pressure off the student at the board. Half the battle of making students present is to make it feel safe. In this method the stakes are low and it allows them to get comfortable with being the centre of attention but without the perceived danger of making a fool of themselves by getting the answer wrong.
