The “PALgroups Podcast” is focused on college study review groups.  PAL is the name for the study review groups used at the University of Minnesota.  We drew upon best practices from international models such as Supplemental Instruction, Peer-led Team Learning, and the Emerging Scholars Program. I served on the team that created the PAL model at the Univ. of Minnesota. Before UMN, I served at the Center for SI at the Univ. of Missouri-KC. 
 
Some episodes share new things I am learning from around the world. Common names for peer learning groups are Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) and Peer Assisted Learning (PAL). Other podcast episodes feature student study group leaders and program coordinators describing session activities that worked well. Those interviews include what they are learning personally and professionally from their experience. Send an email to David Arendale, arendale@umn.edu, if you or your students would like to be interviewed for the podcast.  I also maintain an annotated bibliography of publications about seven major peer learning models.  It now exceeds 1,600 publication.  Click this link to download the bibliography.  Training manuals and other PAL resources are available by clicking on this link for the website.
