PLTL: A Student-Faculty Partnership for Transforming the Learning Environment. Pratibha Varma Nelson, Professor of Chemistry, Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Executive Director Center for Teaching and Learning, IUPUI

Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) provides students with opportunities for intellectual and personal development as well as a restructuring of their content knowledge. This approach preserves the lecture and introduces a new structure, a weekly two-hour workshop where students interact to solve problems under the guidance of a trained peer leader. Each weekly PLTL workshop centers on carefully constructed problems and activities, selected by the instructor in order to address common misconceptions and develop conceptual understanding. This presentation will provide an overview of the Peer-led Team Learning (PLTL) model of teaching.

This event is open to the public.

Sponsored by the Dean of Faculty and the Chemistry Department
