Vancouver Island University Peer Supported Learning

Peer Supported Learning (PSL) sessions are scheduled informal study sessions led by a senior student who has taken the course before. It is a place where there are no dumb questions and students work together to learn the material. Peer-Supported Learning is not remedial learning - it is meant for everyone and focuses on improving learning through working collaboratively. Studies have shown that students learn more and retain information longer when working together.
