Basic attending skills

“This video is a good resource for students to learn and master the fundamental skills of listening, especially in the counselling setting. The skills demonstrations enable students to recognize how to conduct a counselling session with various skills.”

Educating Rita

“This is a film adaptation of a stage play of the same title. Rita, who is the main character in the film, is a young adult who has decided to join the Open University as a student, not to get a qualification for a job, but simply to “find herself”. She takes English Literature courses, and is assigned a tutor who has already lost his passion in teaching and, I would say, in life. Their meetings are full of funny interactions, because of the difference in their class background, and their way of looking at life and its meanings. I have watched the film many times and each time the conversations in the film remind me of my original reason for taking up a career in education. This is also a film I have used in my own teaching a lot – many of my students have enjoyed the fun, the craziness, and most importantly, the questions asked in the film. I feel this is one film that all university students should watch, and in turn reflect on their own decisions about their own lives.”
