Here am I at the keyboard waiting to go for MJM coffee shortly. First opportunity this week as one of the Ms has been none too well and the other has been out every day organising and attending committee meetings.
I'm re-learning the idea that the longer I stay with the OU and the higher the level of study; the more 'hands-off' a tutor becomes. Or is it just me and my 'luck'. Perhaps, even after 9 years of retirement some habits acquired when teaching are reluctant to disappear.
I won't go into details, but in teaching you cannot afford to be o 'hands-off' and unapproachable as some of today's tutors.
- reading/replying to an email fortnightly?
- weighing out the 'pound of flesh' OU student contact like Shylock.
