The Transition to Peer Learning
- Bryce Taylor
- Whole Person Learning – Inquiry, Research and Application
Peer learning is a radical new paradigm in the world that brings with it a call to a more enlightened educational practice.
The ethos and principles of peer learning have tremendous implications for power structures in education and none more so than in assessment and accreditation procedures, and the challenges inherent within such a paradigm are explored in detail.
The final section highlights how the helping world is turning more and more to externally imposed forces, authoritarian models and professionalism, and the dilemmas this raises for both conventional practitioners and those from a peer learning perspective.
