Top marks to peer learn­ing

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

KENS­ING­TON res­i­dent An­neliese Wilson is an out­stand­ing stu­dent and an even bet­ter peer.

The Curtin Univer­sity stu­dent is a mem­ber of the Func­tional Anatomy 100 UniPASS team that won a na­tional peer learn­ing award for most out­stand­ing team.

The team was awarded the 2014 PASS award in recog­ni­tion of Ex­cel­lence and Con­tri­bu­tion to Stu­dent Learn­ing.

UniPASS is a vol­un­tary aca­demic as­sis­tance pro­gram open to all stu­dents in tar­geted units.

The pro­gram utilises peer- led group study to help stu­dents suc­ceed in tra­di­tion­ally dif­fi­cult sub­jects.

All stu­dents en­rolled in a tar­geted unit are of­fered and en­cour­aged to at­tend UniPASS.

The award ac­knowl­edges the hard work and high level of skill the team had put into peer ed­u­ca­tion.

Ms Wilson started UniPASS support for FA100 in 2013 and fos­tered a col­lab­o­ra­tive team cul­ture that con­sis­tently came up with en­gag­ing learn­ing meth­ods for FA100 UniPASS ses­sions.
