Wilson, Sarah Beth; Varma-Nelson, Pratibha – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
Peer-led team learning (PLTL) research has expanded from its roots in program evaluation of student success measures in Workshop Chemistry to a spectrum of research questions and qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods study approaches. In order to develop recommendations for PLTL research and propose best practices for faculty who will…
