Crossing Borders, Building Bridges, Transforming Education
Crossing Borders, Building Bridges, Transforming Education was the theme of the Peer-Led Team Learning International Society’s (PLTLIS) Fourth Annual Conference, which explored the challenges instructors, administrators, and students face, and their innovative solutions in the changing global landscape of education. The fourth Annual conference was held May 28-30, 2015 at the University of Texas: Dallas in Richardson, Texas.
The concept of training undergraduates as effective facilitators of learning is becoming a popular transformative pedagogical strategy and a driving force in educational research. In an ever-changing global landscape, it is crucial for educators to build a network of practitioners and communicate with educators from different cultural backgrounds. Building international connections, especially for the Peer Leader, will help disseminate exciting new practices and opportunities for learning and enriching the quality of the student and instructor experience.
