I posted my Activity 6.3 in the A215 Cafe.
I didn’t want to, and I tried not to. I don’t like the Cafe. It’s not as constructive as it should be.
But I posted both activities in my Tutor Group Forum four or five days ago and have only had one response on each. Those responses were helpful but one response for each isn’t really enough.
I’ve tried with the Tutor Group Forum. When I put the messages in order of Name, my name comes up most. It’s quite embarrassing. I don’t want to be one of those people on the Cafe who moan about their Tutor Group. Actually, when people post on my TG Forum they have really interesting things to say. And there are one or two active people, for whom I am very grateful. It’s just not as active as I think it could be.
I even drafted an email to my tutor:
I hope you’re well. I’m really enjoying the course, and thanks for the feedback on the TMA last week.
I hope you don’t mind me emailing you for something relatively trivial. Our TG Forum is really quiet, but I think it would be helpful to have more discussions and Activity critiques. Have you any suggestions as to how we could encourage some of the other TG Members to post on the forum more frequently?
I understand that not everyone enjoys posting their work or participating online, but there are definitely a few people who do frequent the forum and don’t post often – perhaps you have some suggestions for eliciting more active participation?
Thanks for your help,
I won’t send it. I feel like an arse.
And now, posting my Activities on the Cafe for feedback, I feel like a hypocrite too.
