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.

S04-E02 Short overview of the updated and expanded annotated bibliography for the seven major peer learning programs. Our colleagues in the field have been productive in the past year with new research and publications to inform us of best practices for peer learning programs. I monitor seven major programs that have been implemented throughout the U.S. and other countries around the globe. Those programs are the Accelerated Learning Program, Peer Assisted Learning, Peer-Led Team Learning, Structured Learning Assistance, Supplemental Instruction which is also known by other names including Peer Assisted Learning, Peer Assisted Study Sessions, and Video-Based Supplemental Instruction.

I hope my words are useful in your work to help students achieve their dreams.
