The colleague teaching the class will afterwards discuss all technical and other details of the tutorial to be taught by the fellow.
  • Tutorial: Three convenors will observe the tutorial and give feedback to the fellow. The students fill out feedback forms which can be discussed in the feedback session. Other fellows may attend the tutorial and the feedback session.
