University of Manchester, Conference Room A/B, School of Physics and Astronomy, Schuster Building, Manchester, M13 9PL

The aim of this meeting is to share good practice with regard to ways in which students can be encouraged to take ownership of their learning and how students can learn by working with their peers.
There is evidence which suggests that students’ learning can be more effective when there is peer to peer interaction. Several peer-assisted learning techniques will be showcased and their effectiveness will be discussed in terms of the benefits to both the learners and also to their mentors. The workshop will also cover examples of student generated content such as the development of MCQ assessments and the writing of lab practicals. The invited speakers aim to give attendees the benefit of their experience of institutional and departmental programmes, and the student perspective will also be included. There will be opportunity for discussion with practitioners.
All interested people are welcome, though pre-booking is essential, including please information on any special dietary arrangements. Please email marion.birch@manchester.ac.uk .
There is no charge for those in HE due to the generous support of the HE Academy. There is disabled access to the conference room via lifts.
