A training guide for the development of student leaders of peer learning sessions.
This guide serves as the foundation of the Peer-Assisted Learning Program at the University of Minnesota. It has been nine years in the making and continues to be in revision mode as the program matures and the wonderful student facilitators provide more keen and enlightening insights into what they discover and whaat they need to be the most successful in the classroom.
The eight principles upon which the guide is organized originated with Dr. David Arendale, who generously shared his philosophy and pedagogy about peer-assisted learning, and fully supported an abridged, student focused revision of his more comprehensive manual - also available on his website. We hope you find our training guide a good complement to your existing training resources.
