I had 68 students in my studies of politics class this past semester. The timetable committee had allocated three hours for this class so I ran an hour-long lecture and a two-hour tutorial each week.
The room allocated for this course was too small for both lectures and tutorials and we had to put up with it for two weeks.
In the third week, the students decided that they did not enjoy the tutorial classes because the number of students was too big and there was less time for everyone to adequately interact and contribute to discussions.
I raised the students concern to my colleagues and some of them gave me times and rooms that were allocated to their courses that they were not using.
These times were not convenient for the students as they had clash with other courses. I had no choice but to seek consent from the class to run a tutorial class in the night from 7.30 to 9.30.
This arrangement went well with boarding students who would turn up for class after dinner. Some of them would bring tea to class to share with me.
