Promoting and Enhancing the PLTL Model
The Sixth Annual Conference will be held at Northeastern Illinois University, in Chicago, Illinois, June 1-3 2017. Departments using PLTL include Mathematics, Organic Chemistry, and other disciplines.
Using mobile devices as the technology to support “Cyber PLTL” or cPLTL was tested by a team at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). Issues of functionality were explored and three platforms were found that offered viable choices for online PLTL programs, as explained in a paper co-authored by Pratibha Varma-Nelson published in Educause.[READ PAPER]
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. http://journals.plos.org/
