General description of the project:
Students vary in processing their education and groups can clash or mesh. For instance, an all-quiet group won’t have a leader, which can lead to procrastination and lack of communication. Or a team with one very strong personality who doesn’t know how to share the workload, which can lead to mental stress and becoming overworked. Training with Peer Led Team Learning (PLTL) provided much of my knowledge on how I could maneuver and deal with types of students in multiple situations and environments.
The course gives insight in working with various individuals, whether they have disabilities, different learning styles, strong/ weak personalities, sitting arrangements, etc. I have applied over 8 tactics learned in the training in one semester alone, to others as well as onto myself for bettering our education.The goal was to learn methods and problem-solving styles on how we can help each and every student for individual but mainly group work and aiding their experience to think and work as a team.
