Peer-Assisted Study Sessions

We have revamped our Supplemental Instruction (SI) program model to create the PASS program, a peer-assisted study session opportunity for all UD undergraduates. PASS is a series of ongoing weekly review sessions for students taking difficult courses. The program provides a learning opportunity for all students who want to improve their understanding of course material and improve their grades.

Attendance at sessions is voluntary and participation is FREE.

PASS program levels are defined below:

PASS Level 1 (PL1): is organized like drop-in sessions; students attend at a designated time/location where the leader will offer a Q&A style session for that course. Please come to the session prepared with questions. The PL1 leader hosts this session once a week throughout the semester.

PASS Level 2 (PL2): provides a collaborative learning opportunity. The PL2 leader is trained to engage students and guide them through material using group activities during each session. Our PL2 leaders also attend class with students during the semester to review course content, take notes, and build relationships with students and the professor. This ultimately enhances our leaders’ connection with the students, helping their holistic understanding of the course. Students do not need to come to the session prepared with questions to ask. The PL2 leader hosts these sessions 2-3 times a week throughout the semester.

Benefits for the student include the opportunity to:

  • meet with classmates to compare notes
  • discuss important concepts and practice understanding
  • develop strategies for studying the subject
  • review and create study guides
  • ask questions in an instructor-free zone
