Peer Facilitated Learning

Peer Facilitated Learning: An evaluation of the student and academic experience of participating in reciprocal sharing of knowledge

Peer Facilitated Learning (PFL) is where students are involved in facilitating the learning of other students where knowledge, ideas and experience is shared in a reciprocal way that benefits both groups (Boud 2001). This work by Dr Susan Way examines the experiences of students and academics who are involved in PFL.

The BSc (Hons) midwifery programme was REPROVED in May 2014. Health and Wellbeing 2 (level 5) is a new unit and innovative in its learning and assessment style, incorporating PFL and assessed by academics who also assist with applying the knowledge shared to clinical practice. This project seeks to evaluate the impact and effectiveness of PFL of those participating in reciprocal sharing of knowledge.
