As Anderson et al (2001) say ". In that more physical, more observable environment, it is easy to see the function of the teacher as consisting of three major roles: first, as designer of the educational experience, including planning and administering instruction as well as evaluating and certifying competence; second, as facilitator and co-creator of a social environment conducive to active and successful learning; and finally, as a subject matter expert who knows a great deal more than most learners and is thus in a position to ‘scaffold’ learning experiences by providing direct instruction."
The first thing that Neil does is absent himself from the group - presumably trying to allow groups to continue without feeling they are being watched, but actually implying that he doesn't care. As Anderson et al say he needs to be a facilitator, without this, he is not actually enabling the students to learn.
(Strikes me as similar to our tutors being absent for the two week Easter break! ;-) - but that was a break, not semester I know!)
K 0-B - keeps asking questions that no-one answers.
Kieran - seems keen, but doesn't really seem to be addressing the question correctly - and is therefore taking the group in the wrong direction.
Ade - is trying to steer the group back to the correct task unsuccessfully
Bethany is the only one who seems to have done any work.
If there are supposed to be 15 in a group - then lots of the group didn't seem to be participating. Having come up with just the 3 countries - if two were already taken, that didn't leave much scope for anyone else.
If the tutor had been keeping an eye on the group and their discussions, all these things could have been addressed and the group kept on task, all members participating, and questions answered.
