Helping Students Learn From Student Peers
As professionals, we know the value of learning from our peers.  Therefore, we often offer our students exposure, experience, and mentorship in peer learning.  Peer-to-peer learning and teaching happens in the context of group projects, team learning, peer review, and study collaborations.  This Learning Community hopes to establish best practices in setting up and monitoring peer learning experiences for students.  We will address questions pertaining to how to set up assignments and teams and how to monitor and reward good peer practices.

Learning Communities are open to all faculty, graduate students, and staff educators unless an LC specifically notes the intended demographic (example: Graduate Students Only).
