The basic principle of peer-to-peer learning is that it is all about students teaching other students. Instead of teachers leading the way, students themselves ask for help by other students in order to develop all kind of skills. What should we think of this learning method? Is learning without teachers the way to learn in the future?
During this session, you are invited to watch and participate in a discussion about the pro’s and cons of peer-to-peer learning in the heart of the peer-to-peer learning centre of Amsterdam: Codam Coding College. During this evening session, which is hosted shortly after the conference ‘Leren door te doen’, we will discuss what peer-to-peer learning beholds, the pro’s and con’s, how it is implemented at Codam Coding College and in what way this method can be implemented in the current education system.
