Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are peer learning groups that help new students to learn how to learn, better understand unit content, and improve their results. The program is offered in selected units each session.
What are PASS sessions like?
PASS groups are run by students, for students, and have a relaxed and productive atmosphere where students work together to find answers. PASS Leaders do not teach or re-teach unit content. Instead, Leaders facilitate peer learning activities that help students ‘learn how to learn’ in the unit.
In S1 2018 PASS@SCU is piloting a new delivery model. PASS groups will be held leading into key assessment tasks to help students develop the skills and know-how needed to complete the task, and ask teachers questions.
To understand what happens in PASS groups, and why it is a good idea to attend, watch the following clip of current SCU student Teena Kavasilas, sharing her PASS experience.
