Peer Assisted Learning

By CGordon 12 Nov 2018

Our peer-assisted learning programme has now launched across the residences!

What is peer-assisted learning?

Peer-assisted learning is where more experienced students who have recently achieved a higher level of education in a subject area assist those at lower levels.

What are the benefits?

Many feel better able to approach and ask questions of their peers compared to formal teaching staff. 
Peer-assisted learning facilitators are students just like you, and so understand your perspective, concerns, and questions, yet they are more experienced in the subject area and courses you're grappling with and so can often offer sage advice.

How does the scheme work?

1. Prospective students email the programme co-ordinator <john.donaldson@glasgow.ac.uk> outlining the subject area and level they need support with.
2. If there is a living support team member with the relevant experience, they are then matched with the  student to discuss needs in detail and arrange meeting.

What subject areas are covered?

At present: Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Engineering, English Literature, French, History, Italian, Mathematics, Politics, and Statistics. In addition, general study prep and essay/exam 
answer writing support is also available.

What do I do if I have a general query about the programme?

Email the programme co-ordinator <john.donaldson@glasgow.ac.uk>.
