How to get the most out of Peer Learning visits: 

Come Prepared

  • Bring all relevant material to the peer learning session (e.g., textbook, lecture notes, assignments, lab books, paper drafts, past tests).
  • Do the assigned reading and homework before the sessions.
  • Set reasonable goals for both short- and long-term work. Write them down. Share them with your PLA and revise, if necessary.
  • Have specific concepts or questions ready to discuss with the PLA.

Actively Participate

  • Ask the PLA to explain not only specific concepts but also how they study for similar courses.
  • Stop the PLA if they are going too fast or telling you too much.
  • Do not expect the PLA to tell you the answer or to do your work.
  • Don’t be afraid to say, “I still don’t get it, let’s do it again.”
  • Review the material on your own soon after the session.
  • Talk with other students and consider participating in a study group.

Don’t wait until the last minute to get help for a test or assignment.

  • Arrive early.
  • Be patient while a PLA works with other students.
  • Collaborate with other students while waiting for help
