In the years since 2008, average enrolments in courses offered by the School of Petroleum Engineering, UNSW Australia have grown from approximately 40 students to more than 100 in 2014. This has rapid growth has created challenges for the School as the numbers of teaching staff has lagged behind the number of students. In order to ensure students continue to enjoy a high quality learning experience and to manage staff workloads, we suggest following approaches:
1) peer instruction: after delivering an important topic/concept, we give students opportunity to discuss the topic covered,
2) tutorial-lecture swapping: students are challenged to solve a tutorial question before the related topic has been discussed in the lecture, and
3) improved assessment/feedback techniques to address the issues associated with conventional techniques.
