‘Tutorials That Work’ - Arrow Publishers (1992).

This book deals with how to run tutorials at university level, to get maximum participation from members of the learner group. It can be applied directly to any small group teaching or training, even to sessions at conferences. It is based on the author’s research into tutorials at the university at which he worked, and incorporates the wisdom accruing from more than 70 courses that the author ran to train university tutors.

A few months after this book was first in print, the publishers told the author that every time their representatives went into a professor’s office anywhere in South Africa, they saw photocopied pages from this book somewhere on the professor’s desk. They reckoned it was ‘the most photocopied book’ they had ever encountered. The book has thus far not been available in countries other than South Africa. It is at present only obtainable from the author for a price of R150 (approx $15).
