PAL Program

The PAL (Peer-Assisted Learning) program is a modified supplemental instruction support program for first year, historically difficult, or mandatory "gatekeeper" courses at Sheridan.

How it Works

The PAL Program consists of weekly, informal class study sessions facilitated by a PAL Leader. For participating courses, PAL sessions may take place during the tutorial hour for your course or be scheduled outside of class time. During PAL sessions, your PAL Leader will review notes, discuss readings, develop study skills and help you and your classmates prepare for your tests and assignments. Sessions are interactive and provide you with an opportunity to ask questions and check your understanding.

PAL Leaders are current Sheridan students, recommended by faculty, who have previously completed the course with a grade of 76% or higher. Your PAL Leader will re-attend class lectures and take notes right alongside you and your classmates.
