Peer learning, which is supported by learning theories such as Behaviourism, Cognitivism, Social Constructivism, and Connectivism, is increasingly gaining the attention of researchers and practitioners with an emphasis on student-centered learning in educational settings. A review of relevant literature indicates that higher education institutions employ a variety of peer learning programs that potentially benefit both those who receive help and also those who provide help among peers.
This study was designed to find out what peer learning programs are available at the University of Windsor, Canada, where the authors teach; how they are operated; and how undergraduate students from different academic programs at this university perceive such programs. Based on the findings, recommendations are made for faculty members as well as student service units to implement various types of peer learning so as to provide students with the best possible learning experience.
