Peer-to-Peer learning

Make the most of your resources

Learning from each other

A lack of opportunities to practice results in too little hands-on experience for healthcare students. In addition, limited teaching staff available to run simulations often results in valuable resources such as training facilities and training equipment being underutilized. This spare capacity provides a poor return on investment and also results in less training time for the students.

Learning from peers

Formalized peer-to-peer learning can help students learn more effectively. At a time when university resources are stretched and demands upon staff are increasing, peer-to-peer learning offers students the opportunity to take advantage of a valuable resource -- each other. This method also enables more practice than traditional teaching and learning methods.

Peer-to-Peer learning allows members of small groups to guide one another through different sets of formalized training scenarios. The training is reciprocal and often involves students in the same class or cohort. It is not a substitute for teaching and activities designed and conducted by staff, but complements the teaching and learning activities and enhances the quality of overall education.
