Peer Led Team Learning


This nationally recognized model of teaching and learning utilizes students who have previously done well in STEM courses and who then become "peer-leaders". These peer leaders facilitate small-group learning as an integral part of gateway STEM courses. Each week, peer leaders meet with their "student group" to engage in problem solving activities and discussion of course material.


The PLTL has been adapted to many institutions and has demonstrated its effectiveness in improving student learning.
