preparation of short presentations, discuss and debate ideas, theories, and arguments with peers as well as mentor
students when appropriate.

Asking key questions that lead to revealing discussions;

about various theories, concepts and models when the difference of opinion serves as both a counterpoint and a
way of exploring all sides of a concept, issues, or practice; and
Working with others to come to a common understanding of topics—in and out of the classroom (ie in formal and
informal learning settings);
Mentoring other students to support them in their learning process and to share knowledge;
Providing feedback to the lecturer, tutors and other students;
