“If you want to increase student academic achievement,
give each student a friend”
-Prof. John A.C. Hattie
Peer Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that involves groups of students working together to solve a problem, complete a task, or create a product
Each team member is responsible for learning what is taught and helping teammates learn, thus creating an atmosphere of achievement.
Students work through the assignment until all group members successfully understand and complete it.
Importance of Peer
Peer Learning is a teaching and learning strategy that involves groups of students working together to solve a problem, complete a task, or create. Rather than teachers instructing students in peer learning, students educate their peers as part of a two-way learning activity to help each other try to understand the curriculum. This helps students in many aspects.
Active learning: Peer learning has the advantage of transforming learning into an active process. Rather than just consuming information, students get the opportunity to lecture, teach, discuss, and debate the subject.
Developing Social skills: Collaboration and interaction with classmates will enhance social skills in students. As students work toward a common goal, peer learning can also foster a sense of community and cooperation.
Building confidence: Peer learning is more comfortable for students who feel shy in large groups and it will develop their confidence gradually. Having someone they can identify makes it easier for them to ask questions, work through challenges and build confidence.
