5.1 Course delivery

The student reported that they experienced a range of different group sizes during their teacher preparation course. 74% of the respondents indicated that the dominant form of groupings was in the form of lectures in groups larger than 60. This is a reflection on the number of plenary sessions in the Educational Theory courses, the English Usage course, and the "content" courses in the feeder faculties. 98% of the students also reported that tutorial groups sessions of smaller groups were evident often or very often. The questionnaire also reported that over 60% of the students valued demonstration lessons but that they rarely took place.
