                                       At present the student who reads out their essay
                                       doesn't seem to get a great deal of feedback,
                                       and even though their essay is supposed to
                                       stimulate discussion, there often seems to be
                                       little direct reference to that person's work.

                                          It would be nice to have a slightly better idea of

                                                    Very pleased with tutorials overall. They have
                                                    been both useful and entertaining! Perhaps now

caused a problem but was unnerving.                 this term's tutorials were still very useful.
