Summary

Description

A proven strategy for retention, PLTL provides an active learning experience for students and creates leadership opportunities for undergraduates. The PLTL model engages teams of six to eight students in learning sessions guided by a peer leader. Peer leaders are select students who have performed well in the class and who have completed a leadership training. Outcomes for undergraduate students including improve their learning, developing team working skills, and refining problem-solving skills. The PLTL effort improves academic performance and retention in the “gatekeeper” courses (i.e., courses that limit a student from advancing in higher level courses and possibly the major).
