Bringing the research model (of teaching) to the classroom 

written by Pratibha Varma-Nelson and Shaun Murphree

The Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) model of teaching actively engages students in the learning process by having them solve carefully structured problems in small groups under the direction of a trained peer leader. Peer-led workshops are an effective way to engage large numbers of students with course material and each other. Improved performance and retention, development of communication and team skills, higher motivation and course satisfaction, and increased interest in pursuing further study in science are among the benefits of the PLTL approach. This workshop will introduce the theoretical and practical elements of the PLTL model as well as some of its applications.
