Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) Leaders in the classroom
The PAL (Peer-Assisted Learning) program is a modified supplemental instruction support program for first-year, historically difficult, or mandatory "gatekeeper" courses at Sheridan providing weekly study hall sessions for students based on course or program content already taught by the course’s professor.
In addition, Learn Well PAL Leaders provide program-specific academic support to first-year students within Sheridan's Learn Well Virtual Communities. Learn Well PAL Leaders schedule and host virtual drop-in "study hall" sessions for students enrolled in the Learn Well Virtual Community.
Peer Tutors *Online during Covid-19*
In extenuating circumstances, a specially hired peer tutor can offer one-on-one tutoring through the digital platform, WebEx. Peer tutoring is available for a fee in courses other than those supported by the Learning Assistants in the Tutoring Centre or through Sheridan’s PAL program. Peer tutors are current Sheridan students who have been selected based on their grades and a faculty reference.
