Research – Peer-led learning

New research by the HEA looked into peer-led learning – and highlights that students who take part in peer-led learning session experience reduced anxiety associated with transition into higher education. They have also a greater sense of belonging and improved academic confidence – something we also experience with our peer mentoring sessions.

There are also many benefits for ‘peer leaders’. According to the report, they acquire high level of personal and professional skills – and their own learning is depend, grades improve, relationships and inter-cultural awareness is enhanced and employability prospects are greater.

Have a look at the research report ‘Mapping student-led peer learning in the UK’ by Chris Keenan here.
