The acting of the tutor in tutoring sessions in groups during Problem Based Learning has been scarcely studied. In this study the interventions of three tutors and their 43 students in a first PBL tutoring session are analysed. The tutors had taken some recommendations for acting during the session, based on the results of previous research. Those guidelines included contextualizing the task, dynamizing the group, fostering learning and asking for evidence to students. The sessions have been audiotaped and videotaped and afterwards transcribed. The interventions have been categorized, making a content analysis. The categories are theoretically grounded. It is studied how three tutors act, how they implement previously recommended guidelines and which is the effectiveness in students ́ participation, generation and elaboration of ideas. The results show that tutors increase the interventions of the recommended types. The participation of the students is high, they pose ideas related to the learning-outcomes, and they share and elaborate ideas. It is concluded that the recommended guidelines have been effective for the first tutoring session of PBL. It is discussed that the role of the reflection of the tutors about their own professional practice has been key for adopting or not effective guidelines.
