Welcome to Peer-Led Team Learning International Society: Promoting and Enhancing the PLTL Model


Sixty seven peer-reviewed studies of Peer-Led Team Learning were examined in a new paper, Small Groups, Significant Impact. The paper, co-authored by Sarah Beth Wilson and Pratibha Varma-Nelson, found five program evaluation themes: student success measures, student perceptions; reasoning and critical thinking skills; research on peer leaders; and variants of the PLTL model.

Peer-Led Team Learning is one of the models used as exemplars to promote sustainability for undergraduate STEM innovations, in How-to Guides, available for download or as paperback books through Increase the Impact.  

The Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (CAHSI) has recently been selected as a Bright Spot in Hispanic Education in honor of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for Hispanics’ 25th anniversary. PLTLIS Board members Mohsen Beheshti (California State University, Dominguez Hills), Mitsue Nakamura (University of Houston Downtown), and Marcelo Sztainberg (NorthEastern Illinois University) are involved with CAHSI, which is headquartered at the University of Texas at El Paso.

New study shows the dramatic effect of PLTL on minority students: Peer-Led Team Learning Helps Minority Students Succeed, a paper from Syracuse University (New York) highlights how students, especially under-represented minority students, increase their academic performance by participating in PLTL Biology workshops.
