Dr Eagar’s tutorial – 21 November 2012

I am told that two people attended dr Eagar’s tutorial this afternoon.
This is completely unacceptable guys. Please understand this. Tutors (for the most part) put a lot of effort and time into preparing for these tuts.

Additionally, and this may come as a surprise to you all, we as consultants get absolutely no financial compensation for doing tutorials. They fall broadly into our job description, but the province pays our salary and the province does not care if we give tuts or not. The point is that tutors give FREELY of their time and energy. When two people pitch up for the tut, that energy is wasted.

If I was Dr Eagar, I’d feel completely justified in refusing to do any more part I teaching. I know that the exam is next week, but that is no excuse whatsoever for the vast majority of people not attending. I am going to report the poor attendance to the HODs at all three sites, and they can do with the information as they see fit.

Remember that the tutorials were moved to Wednesday to facilitate attendance. Not so that you would get an early afternoon. To not attend is tremendously disrespectful. It also makes it very difficult to go the extra mile to help people pass the FCA I when there does not appear to be the commitment expressed.

I trust this is an isolated incident and that attendance will improve.
