Peer Assisted Learning

By CGordon 01 Jan 2019

Looking for some help with your courses? Want to get a head start on studying? Got some questions that you'd rather not ask your lecturer? Then keep reading, 'cause our Peer-Assisted Learning programme could be just what you're looking for!

What is peer-assisted learning?

Peer-assisted learning is where more experienced students in a subject area assist those at lower levels.

What are the benefits?

Many students feel more able to approach their peers to ask questions compared to formal teaching staff. 
Peer-assisted learning facilitators are students just like you, and so understand your perspective, concerns, and questions. 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?

Many specific subject areas are covered in addition to general study prep and essay/exam answer writing support. We consistently add new facilitators from various schools and courses as soon as they are trained.
Email the programme co-ordinator john.donaldson@glasgow.ac.uk and we can see if a facilitator with the right experience is available. 

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

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