Workshop Summary

Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) is an excellent opportunity to nurture a closer departmental learning community whereby trained higher-year student volunteers lead small, collaborative study groups with lower-year peers. To encourage the development of focused peer-support schemes at York, in 2017/18 the Learning Enhancement team (ASO) piloted a framework aimed at assisting departments in developing their own Peer-assisted learning (PAL) schemes. This workshop will report on the key findings from the pilot and outline the Peer-Assisted Learning at York framework. Come along to hear how the PAL framework can support your students and staff to build effective learning communities.
