  • Overview

    This unit aims to provide students who want to explore aspects of learning and teaching within their discipline with the knowledge and skills to enable them to be effective peer assisted learning leaders at undergraduate level. Each student is placed in a teaching and learning role during their study of this unit, so that they will be in a position to apply what they are learning (and reflect on their experiences). Where possible, the teaching and learning support role involves interaction with students within their substantive discipline area.
