CITL Workshop: The Peer Learning Experience at Lehigh

Date & Time: Tuesday, November 17, 12:10 pm to 1:00 pm

Presenters: Jason Slipp

Audience: Faculty, Staff, Students

Please join us for a panel of CITL staff and students within our TRAC program for an in-depth conversation on the impact and promise of peer learning at Lehigh. The TRAC program has spent over a decade moulding an effective peer learning ecosystem that has created tighter connections between students and their learning.


Given the recent disruption of COVID-19, creating a tight-knit learning community among students and faculty is more important than ever.  The panel of undergraduate and graduate TRAC Fellows will discuss their experiences utilizing the peer learning model and how well-established methods can be adopted across the curriculum to increase student engagement, especially as teaching and learning become increasingly distributed.


This session will be highly interactive and both faculty and students are invited to hear from the expert panel and share their own experiences with peer learning.
