Peer Teaching Group
The Peer Teaching Program is intended to offer another option to students who would benefit from assistance with coursework or clinical skills.
Peer Learners, who must be referred to the Peer Teaching Program by course faculty, will be matched with volunteer Peer Teachers according to specific needs.
Peer Teaching may include reviewing course content for exams, assisting with clinical paperwork, and practicing clinical skills in the laboratory setting
The Peer Teacher Program provide students with a unique opportunity to learn from a peer, gain teaching experience, to help others, and provides faculty with an additional resource to assist struggling students.
Students who are peer teachers benefit from the program through personal satisfaction, the gaining of teaching experience, an increase in their own knowledge, resume building, and by helping other students achieve success.
