Small (ish) Group Teaching

October 21, 2009

Day 2 of the respiratory catch up sessions today in lecture theatre 2.  A bigger turn out for this one, and I couldn’t persuade anyone to sit in the front row – probably something to do with my cheese sarnie.

I think the sessions have been useful so far.  It’s interesting to see the different questions asked, but more so the same questions asked each time.  Common threads have been  – COPD, emphysema and chronic bronchitis; arterial blood gas analysis; the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 respiratory failure.  These are the more difficult topics – they are certainly better taught in small groups.  This group was just small enough, I think.


Extra Teaching Sessions

October 18, 2009

You have all chosen your preferred session, and apart from Josh, have managed to follow the instructions and chosen only 1.

So, I shall call a close to the doodling, and tell you when the sessions will be:

Tuesday 2 – 3pm, LT1

Wednesday 1 – 2pm LT2

Friday 2 – 3pm East Block Seminar Room

Bring your questions, and I will endeavour to answer them.  If you have any particular questions in mind, let me know before hand, and I will bring along some prepared stuff.



October 14, 2009

Over 40 of the second years have now responded to the advert to timetable a pulling it together session.  So it looks like I’ve got my work cut out for most of next week.

I will get my secretary to book a room for Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon, and we’ll have a number of sessions, I suppose!

I’ll post the times and places.  The idea is that the second years come with questions, and I make some kind of tutorial out of the answers!  No questions – boring session!  Start thinking of questions.

Extra ITA Session 23rd September

September 21, 2009

If you were unlucky enough to be in the ITA session on Monday morning, when I tried to whizz up the session, but ended up screwing up all the timings, you may have missed out on the poster board discussion.

I will be in the ITA from 2 PM, for at least an hour, to go over the boards again, discuss whatever takes your fancy, and probably have a wee bottle of juice from those lovely ladies at the DUSA shop.  I quite like those banana chips things too – allegedly healthy, but they’re completely coated in honey, aren’t they?

So.  I’ll be in the ITA for an hour, maybe 2, depending on when the 4th years want taught…..
