The Workshop Tutorial project has grown in answer to the perceived need to provide students with an opportunity to use and discuss principles of physics and their applications in a learning
environment that encourages interaction with peers and supervising staff. In this manner the Workshops compliment the large traditional lectures that students are expected to attend. The style of the questions and activities are chosen to provide a mixture of quantitative and qualitative conceptbased questions and concrete hands-on activities. Reference to research in physics education on student misconceptions has been made in formulating questions (Sharma, Millar and Seth 1999).
