I think your comment about Neil’s initial decision to not get involved sets the scene for the whole discussion.  It is this key decision that causes all of the problems.  Your suggestion of a separate discussion forum for problems is a really practical and sensible solution, particularly if Neil is staying away from the group activity deliberately to see how they cope without the tutor.  We don’t see the learning outcomes but I wonder if one of them is something like ‘the successful completion of an unsupervised piece of work?’
