Exploring Peer Learning: Student to Student, Lecturer to Lecturer

Peter Petocz, Michael Duke, Ayse Bilgin, Anna Reid

Abstract


This article explores how lecturers in statistics have adopted a model for a student peer learning project initially established in a music school. The exploration shows how disciplinary differences generate different peer learning approaches between students and how a team of lecturers has adapted a project from one discipline and institution to another. In essence, it explores the nature of peer learning from the perspective of student peers, including the extra insight that is available from the view of lecturer peers. The model is important as it focuses on peer learning that resides in informal spaces rather than within a formalised curriculum.
