Levels of Attainment
A useful form of tutorial might involve individuals or groups, each of which is asked to prepare a short presentation (oral or poster) on a single aspect of the course content (e.g. history of research, the ancient environment, a plant or animal genus, adaptation for life on land).
At more junior university levels the information provided can be
used with only basic use of literature (e.g. book summaries and review
papers). A tutorial approach here might be to ask students to find answers
to specific questions on the geology and palaeontology of the site.
The resource can also be utilised as a 'topic' within a broader course,
At the lowest level of university use, the site could be used purely to
answer questions set to groups of individuals, for example:
At pre-university level the basic information and illustrations can be used to give a general appreciation of the nature and importance of the fossil remains in the Rhynie chert.
