Peer Learning

In Trust, safety, and learning at meetings : Conferences That Work, Adrian reminds us of the importance of peer learning 🏫:

Peer learning allows anyone to be a teacher and/or a student, with these roles switching from moment to moment. Potentially, everyone has something to contribute and to learn.

He’s talking about it in the context of Conferences. I’m thinking about this in the context of the classes I teach. I’ve been experimenting with Pair Share breakouts in Zoom this term. Twice I’ve had students do Pair Shares to share their most recent homework assignments with each other. It’s worked extremely well and I’ll definitely do this again next term.
