‘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
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).
