presentation | biography

This session was a series of facilitated role play simulations. Students were given a scenario and told to act in that role; for example a student who feels aggrieved at the way she has received feedback, late return of coursework, complaints etc. Further group discussion concentrated on the ‘right way’ to present information to the committee, what other information could have been gathered beforehand, and so on. Students played both student roles and staff members.
