Collaborative Peer Learning – LIUBLC

WHAT IS Collaborative Learning Community? Click on link below to find out!

Collaborative Learning Communities is a LIUBLC program that helps students to improve study techniques. In most cases, peer learning has been known to raise grades one half to one whole grade point.

Collaborative Learning Communities, or Supplemental Instruction, is based on the principle that students can improve their mastery of a subject by engaging in interaction and discussions of difficult principles with other students.

A model student (a Peer Learning Leader – PLL) is selected to conduct these regularly scheduled Peer Learning sessions.

In general, the PLLeader has completed the course with a B or higher. He/she will attend the targeted course regularly and meet with the faculty member often. Peer Leader Recommendation Form.

During a PLL session, the leader works to reinforce the main concepts from the class lecture, shares problem-solving techniques, assists students to study together, provides test reviews, as well as introduces fun and helpful ways to study and practice for tests and quizzes.
