A reflection on the Bond model of teaching

Abstract

The vision of the founding professors at Bond Law was to provide a more personal education by a faculty who were truly committed to teaching excellence. So it was that they developed the Bond lecture/tutorial model for law. The model was not new. In fact it was and still is the standard Australian university teaching method. What made the Bond model different was that it mandated small tutorial groups. In many institutions a ‘tutorial’ is in name only, as 30 or more students are crammed into a tutorial. Currently a tutorial group at Bond is capped at 12 students. There is no question that the Bond model has worked and the law faculty, in particular, is recognised for its quality teaching.
