Throughout the school year, the Harte Center for Teaching and Learning organizes workshops and events on a variety of timely and relevant teaching topics and issues for faculty and staff.
Peer Mentoring Working Group
We know that peer-to-peer instruction can be a powerful tool for improving learning–for both the tutor and the tutee. With this in mind, the Harte Center and the Office of Community-Based Learning would like to form a Working Group of interested faculty, staff, and students to explore how best to implement peer-to-peer instruction. Starting in the fall, we’ll explore the various ways peer mentoring is already being employed on campus, generate an understanding of effective practices, and explore some outside resources, including readings and experts in the field. And, of course, we’ll make sure folks are well fed! If you’re interested, please reach out to Sascha Goluboff at email@example.com.
