    Pros

    It was a fantastic experience, conducting tutorial for students in Trinity. The students were engaged with the subject and the module was well organised. It is in a great location also.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there were limited hours available given the nature of the program and the module. There were also some tight deadlines to meet at the end of the college year.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what is being done. Continue to develop the curriculum of the modules to include relevant examples from the real world.
