peer learningFrom September 2016 the Student Experience team will be working with colleagues in each School to pilot a number of Peer Assisted Study Session (PASS) Pilots as well as re-vamping the accredited university peer mentoring programme.

PASS involves training students in higher years as PASS Leaders to run weekly structured independent study sessions with students in lower years.  The PASS approach has been heavily evaluated in a number of institutions internationally since the 1960s – it has proven benefits in helping students to adjust to higher education, to develop learning strategies and to connect with their peers.  All pilots are being sponsored by an identified Enhanced Personal Tutor.

The peer mentoring programme will run alongside PASS – any students wanting a peer mentor will be matched with either an academic or pastoral peer mentor who has received the appropriate training.  If you know of any student who would benefit from being trained as a mentor or who would benefit from being mentored then please contact us directly ku.ca1585845708.notl1585845708ob@ec1585845708nerie1585845708pxetn1585845708eduts1585845708.
