Collegiality in the Classroom: The Use of Peer Learning Assistants in Cooperative Learning in Introductory Biology.
Groccia, James E.; Miller, Judith E.
Innovative Higher Education, v21 n2 p87-100 Win 1996
Experienced undergraduate students served as Peer Learning Assistants (PLAs) to facilitate group process and dynamics in cooperative learning groups. Use of this model in large classes (150 students) resulted in significant improvement in group performance and satisfaction with group experience. PLAs defused conflict within groups, and faculty productivity was enhanced because group dynamics problems rarely came to the faculty office. (MSE)
