Peer teaching & learning is the process of students teaching and learning with and from each other. It is a common and recognised practice in both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in health professions education.
Students will take on a formal teaching role (peer tutors) in an educational setting, to share knowledge, skills and attitudes with other students. By taking on voluntary or paid (teaching assistant) teaching, peer tutors are enabled to clarify, reinforce & extend their own learning, thereby developing cognitively and in terms of their professional identity. Teaching is seen as a professional activity, requiring content knowledge and knowledge of teaching, a useful skill set, and the adoption of a planned, purposeful, evaluative and reflexive approach.
This workshop will provide a walkthrough of the concept of teaching assistantship, linking educational theory to practice. Facilitators will discuss the pedagogical concepts of peer teaching, benefits and potential challenges, and essential strategies and skills in peer teaching.
