Peer Assisted Learning (PAL)


What is PAL?

PAL delivers regular, out-of-class, peer-facilitated study sessions for students who want to improve their academic performance. PAL is aligned with subjects that students have traditionally considered challenging.

The study sessions:

  • integrate ‘what to learn’ with ‘how to learn’ in an informal, collaborative and active learning environment.
  • are facilitated by past students who have excelled in the related course and who have been trained to lead PAL.
  • supplement tutorials by providing opportunities for students to review, consolidate and clarify course content through questioning and problem solving.

PAL is open to everyone enrolled in the course to which it is aligned. Attendance is voluntary and highly recommended.

When does PAL begin?

PAL begins in Week 2 of Semester.
