Peer learning is the process of students learning with and from each other. This is usually facilitated through teaching and learning activities such as student–led workshops, study groups, peer-to-peer learning partnerships, and group work. Some benefits include, development of student collaboration and communication skills, enhancement of student confidence and the ability to take control of their own learning (Ramsden, 1992; Biggs, 2003). Students feel more comfortable working with their peers, so may interact and engage in reflection and explore ideas more deeply than in a teacher led environment.
