Special Edition: Academic Peer Learning (Part II)

Peer Learning in Higher Education has seen significant growth in the UK and internationally over the last decade and there have been many innovative developments of models that use higher year peers to support the academic and personal development of lower year students. These are variously referred to as PAL (Peer Assisted Learning), PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) and SI (Supplemental Instruction).
This second part of the JLDHE special edition presents a further opportunity to showcase models of academic peer learning and to publish research, evolving innovative practice, case studies and proposed new methods and models.
