In the academic year 2016/17 the University of Winchester is running PAL schemes on three programmes, with 29 second and third year students leading weekly PAL sessions for their first year peers. Student participants are chosen through a selection process, which is carried out by the faculty.
All successful PAL leaders are then expected to attend training sessions. These sessions look at agenda setting and how to uncover potential problems with the learning and teaching programme. Second and third year students are trained to facilitate the learning and teaching of programme content and academic skills.
Once trained, a learning lunch workshop will explore the impact the scheme has had on students’ learning, with second and third year PAL leaders attending to talk about their experiences so far.
