Here are some tips for helping your students or trainees:

During a review meeting, the person who should be doing most of the talking is your student or trainee. If you find that it is you, you need to consider the reasons behind this. Is there something worrying the trainee that you haven’t explored adequately? Does the trainee feel comfortable with you? Asking open questions, allowing slightly longer pauses after you ask a question and asking follow-up questions to prompt a fuller answer may help.
