Peer Leader Training Calendar
Learning Centers' peer leaders must attend training and professional development workshops each semester. If you are a peer leader looking for an event to attend, please visit our Peer Leader Training Calendar (Peer Leaders ONLY). For events open to all Rutgers University students, please visit our list of upcoming events.
Peer leaders will be able to understand the various types of motivations and student mindsets when learning. Peer leaders will have the opportunity to brainstorm and learn ways to increase student motivation.
Peer leaders will learn more about analytical thinking strategies and how to understand students' varying methods of problem solving, how students can take notes during their problem-solving process, and how to conduct discussions of problems.
Peer leaders will determine ways to promote and integrate the use of metacognition in their student sessions. Peer leaders will also practice performing metacognitive tasks and will discuss how metacognition specifically ties into student assignments and assessments.
Peer leaders will learn about the variety of online applications, websites and tools that can be used as supplementary resources when working with students. Resources covered will range from organizational tools to content-based resources.
