Peer Assisted Learning (PAL)

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) provides support to traditionally difficult classes with high DFW rates (Ds, Fs, and withdrawals). We offer PAL facilitation to students in NRS 325/326 and MTH 141.

Participating in PAL sessions might be your best learning strategy. Our data reveals that students who participate in PAL sessions are more likely to receive an A or B in their course than those who do not attend. 

86%  of recent survey respondents believed that participating in PAL sessions resulted in a higher course grade.

Research consistently shows that this form of supplemental instruction helps to reduce the number of students who Drop, Fail, or Withdraw from these courses. Peer-assisted learning is considered to be a high-impact form of peer educator support.
