Gucciardi, Enza; Mach, Calvin; Mo, Stephanie

In this study, we aim to gage students' satisfaction, learning outcomes, and experiences with student-faculty team-teaching in an undergraduate quantitative-research-methods course. Three peer tutors co-taught with a faculty instructor each year, receiving pedagogical-placement credits. Data were collected via bi-weekly journals, a focus group, and a questionnaire on students' satisfaction and learning experiences. Data were analyzed through descriptive and thematic analyses. Peer tutors reduced student anxiety, increased engagement, and availability of help inside/outside class. Peer tutors described uncertainty about their roles and tension with classmates. However, peer tutors gained new perspectives, skills, and described supportive student-faculty teaching teams as assets to improving the course experience for students.
