Peer-led Team Learning
Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) is a nationally recognized model of teaching and learning that originated in a chemistry course at the City College of New York in 1991. In PLTL, students who have done well are recruited to be peer-leaders:students who facilitate small-group learning as an integral part of the course. Each week, the peer-leaders meet with their group to engage in problem solving and discussion of course material. The PLTL model has been adapted to many institutions nationwide across all STEM disciplines, and an extensive body of research has demonstrated that PLTL improves student learning.
