Peer Assisted Learning
Peer assisted teaching- learning programme started in 2019 for the 37th batch 3rd MBBS part II Pharmacology repeat students was continued for 38th batch as per evaluations by students on its success.
Fourteen peer tutors who were distinction holders in Pharmacology contributed in teaching sessions. They were asked to make simple notes on what they were going to teach students and their accuracy and clarity were checked by the academic staff and further guidance was given. So, the professional teacher passes the responsibility of teaching to the student whilst remaining responsible for the strategy and the accuracy of the content that is shared. This results in standardization of the programme and both peer tutor and tutee benefit from the expertise of the professional teacher. The classes were conducted at the department skills lab. At the end, the academic members clarified any questions the students had and several mcqs and essay questions were discussed on the topics that were taught.
