Changes that Make a Big Impact on Peer Leader Training

(Retired) | Last updated March 29, 2013


The main element missing from most peer leader programs is training rooted in outcomes-based learning strategies. Without this, your peer leaders may clearly understand what’s expected of them, but be ill equipped to meet those expectations.

Join us online to learn how you can reconfigure your peer leader training by utilizing outcome-based, active learning strategies that model how peer leaders can develop productive relationships with their mentees. Our expert instructor will share ideas for applying this approach to peer leader trainings before and during the term.
