What is the PSLC?
The Regional PSLC is a cross-institutional centre for promoting effective, learner focused peer supported learning systems by building on the experience and expertise in peer supported learning in all Shannon Consortium partner institutions, particularly that related to UL's highly successful academic enrichment programme known as Peer-Supported Learning Groups (PSLG).
What are PSLG Sessions?
Peer-Supported Learning Groups (PSLG) are a proactive academic enrichment programme, that target difficult modules/subjects. They foster cross-year support between students on the same course by encouraging them to support each other and to learn co-operatively under the guidance of students from the year(s) above.
What do the students get from participation?
The sessions involve active learning in small groups which encourages collaborative learning thus working both on what students learn and how they learn. They provide opportunities to practice using the language of the subject in a safe, friendly and supportive environment. Best of all, PSLG sessions benefits all students regardless of their academic abilities.
How do the leaders benefit?
The sessions offer leaders the opportunity to pass on the knowledge that they have gained from taking the targeted module to a new group of students. This gives the leader a chance to revise and review what they have learned but also to examine it from different angles as they prepare exercises to help the attendees self learn. This gives the leaders the opportunity to practice and enhance their team building, leadership and communications skills as well as their organisation and time-management skills.
What is the PVA?
The President's Volunteer Award (PVA) has been established to harness, acknowledge and support the contribution that students at the University of Limerick make to their communities. The PVA draws on a strong tradition of student volunteering both on and off campus.
