Do you want your students to spend more time outside of class engaging with course material? Know your students would learn more deeply if they taught the material to someone else? The Institute for Learning and Teaching offers two programs, TILT Study Groups, and The Arts & Sciences Tutoring program, with the goal of hosting a space where students work together in small groups, grapple with difficult course concepts, and teach one another material with a peer educator available to assist when needed. Visit TILT on any weeknight between 5-10 pm, and you will see students engaged in their courses and peer educators whose goal is to get students to collaborate with one another, to understand how to approach problems, and to model the problem-solving skills needed in college-level coursework. If you have been thinking that the students in your course could benefit from having a peer educator available, this is the session for you. We will share the results of our recent program evaluation, talk about our training program, how we work with faculty, and encourage you to think about how you might use peer educators in your courses in collaboration with TILT.
