Embedding Peer-to-Peer Teaching

Have you ever given a set of group work instructions only to experience silence and blank stares? Embedding the principles of peer education in classroom instruction can help students make the most of discussion, participation, and group and team work. Drawing on the resources and experiences of GW’s Peer Educator programs, this workshop will highlight this innovative practice and demonstrate how to use effective, research-backed peer education practices to enhance peer review and collaborative work in any course context.

This workshop is part of the Instructor Practices for Effective Teaching series for GW instructors seeking strategies to increase student engagement, build an inclusive community, and communicate with learners in new ways. Workshops in this series are sponsored by the Instructional Core. The Instructional Core provides comprehensive, integrated solutions for instructors in search of teaching solutions. If you need feedback on assignment or syllabus design, advice on teaching methods, or ideas for new activities, consider booking a consultation with the Instructional Core.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. GW has an institutional commitment to ensuring that all of our programs and events are accessible for all individuals. If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact libraryevents@gwu.edu at least 72 business hours (3 business days) prior to the event.
