PGWME course on 21.08.2019 in Buckingham
‘Re-visiting parent-adult-child ego states and really thinking about how I react to students has given me plenty to think about. I hadn’t appreciated before how much my reaction is part of the cycle of group behaviour.’
‘SET-GO has been an eyeopener. I now have a way of having those difficult conversations with groups. I’m going to try and turn the conversations around, away from what I want from them to what they want from each other. I’m excited to see what happens this semester.’
‘Separating behaviour which is irritating to me as a tutor from behaviour which is disruptive to group learning taught me a lot about myself. I’m going to focus more on encouraging group learning and less on my irritations.’
‘Even though I’ve been a tutor for many years, it was so useful today to have time to think about the challenges of groupwork ahead and to think about some new ways of managing them.’
‘The interactive style of this session has given me ideas to use with medical students, if I can get them interacting like we have today I’m sure they will get more out of my teaching.’
