Teacher/mentor assistance

The role of the teacher or mentor is to guide students to become proficient modellers.

The teacher should grease the wheels of task implementation, without providing specific advice on the problem.

Teachers might direct students to the framework for modelling, [link] or give suggestions on time management.

For formative modelling tasks outside the IM2C, a teacher can exercise discretion in deciding how direct hints should be.

The aim is to help students overcome blockages to progress, but not compromise critical decision-making and learning processes.
