1. unrealistic goals

2. difficulties with access to materials

3. timetabling difficulties e.g. Friday afternoon

4. Lack of communication

5. Mismatch between course requirements, expectations and students needs and expectations and content

6. Pooor feedback/assessment strategy - quality and timing, failure to respond to individual needs

7. Ignore students background and experiences

8. Treat all components of the course as separate entities - non- alignment

9. Treat students as passive recipients
