Do I know the sequencing of the small group sessions - pre or post the associated lecture?
Have I worked out the intended learning outcomes for these students, in accessible language I can share with the students?
Do I know where these small-group sessions  t in to the overall programme or course my students are studying?
Do I know whether I'll be using the same teaching room for all of these sessions with these students and what any specialist facilities are like in it?
Have I prepared task-brie ngs for work students should do before the sessions? Are they likely to actually do these?
Have I prepared task-brie ngs for a range of possible tasks students could do during the sessions?
