The PLTL Workshop model engages teams of six to eight students in learning sciences, mathematics and other undergraduate disciplines guided by a peer leader. The PLTL Workshop model:
provides an active learning experience for students
creates a leadership role for undergraduates
engages faculty in a creative new dimension of instruction
Students who have done well in the course previously become guides and mentors, Workshop Peer Leaders. For the peer leaders, the experience of working with faculty and guiding their peers through a difficult course is rewarding and unforgettable, and can have a profound effect on their individual and professional growth.
The PLTL Workshop Project, and its publications are supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation's Division of Undergraduate Education.
