Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Support Program
The Peer-to-Peer (P2P) support programme is a Curtin University initiative that offers academic support to students experiencing difficulties with their studies. The pedagogic philosophy behind the programme is a student-centred collaborative learning approach.
Trained student facilitators lead the P2P group sessions, where course materials and topics will be addressed and discussed. These sessions provide an opportunity for students to work in a non-hierarchical, non-threatening collaborative learning environment.
The student facilitators are selected from the brightest of Curtin’s senior students, and work closely with academic staff to ensure the smooth running of the P2P programme.
P2P targets units with a history of difficulty for students, and is inclusive and voluntary, by encouraging students from varying levels of achievement to integrate and work towards improvement.
Through working together and sharing with their facilitators, participants will maximize the potential of individual success. The personal development gained from the P2P experience will be useful to the participants’ personal lives and careers; where they can apply the learned life-skills of sharing, communicating, and critical thinking.
