Schedule of Peer Learning Sessions

Group Learning Sessions are small-group (between 4-6 students) tutoring sessions facilitated by a trained undergraduate student Peer Learning Consultant. Group Learning Sessions are available for a set list of courses, usually GERs or major requirements at the 100- or 200-level. The Peer Learning Consultant for each Group Learning Session will be familiar with most concepts in the course.

We know that learning in a group may not be comfortable for everyone. However, we also know that there can be great benefit to learning in a social setting and hearing different perspectives on course content. If you’re hesitant, please give it a try!

Our Peer Learning Consultants are trained to facilitate group activities and we are committed to creating a comfortable learning environment for all students. Please know that you’ll have the opportunity after each Group Learning Session to submit anonymous feedback, so that you can let us know how we’re doing.

Important notes:

Note for 1/18/22: Due to inclement weather, all PAL sessions will be held remotely via either Zoom or Microsoft Teams. Please do not go to Furman Hall if you sign up for a session on Tuesday, 1/18/22. Your Peer Learning Consultant should send you a link before the start of your session. If you do not receive a link, please email PeerLearning@furman.edu.

Spring 2022 Peer Learning:

  1. Sessions start on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.
  2. Almost all sessions will be in-person in a classroom on the first floor of Furman Hall. Masks are required in academic buildings. Your confirmation email will include the day, time, and exact location of the session you signed up for.
  3. Please go to Furman Hall 121 to check in to your session.
  4. If you are in quarantine or isolation and want to get remote Peer Assisted Learning help during that time: Please email PeerLearning@furman.edu to let us know you will need temporary remote accommodations. Remember, PAL sessions are intended to supplement your learning in class. Attending a group session is not a replacement for communicating with your professors about any classes and content that you miss while in quarantine. Please talk to your professor first and then let us know if you need some additional help.

Class Study Groups

Class Study Groups are group sessions facilitated by a Peer Learning Consultant who can help you and your classmates set learning goals for the group and help facilitate effective collaborative learning activities. The Peer Learning Consultant who facilitates a Class Study Session will not necessarily be familiar with course content, but will be capable of directing group learning and studying.

When you request a Class Study Group, we will assign a Peer Learning Consultant to lead the group and help find a day, time, and classroom for your group to meet. We will notify other students in the class about the group, but it will help if you also actively ask other students to come with you. The more students in a Study Group, the better the learning experience for everyone.

The list of courses available for a Class Study Group will change each semester depending on student requests.
