Welcome! This is the place to learn more about student peer assisted learning (PAL) groups. PAL groups help college students earn higher grades in challenging courses and graduate at higher rates. The audio podcast series features interviews with PAL group leaders at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and other colleges with similar programs. PAL is based on best learning practices from the University of Minnesota and programs developed at other institutions such as Supplemental Instruction, Peer-led Team Learning, Emerging Scholars Program, Structured Learning Assistance, to name a few. The PAL podcast website provides links to resources such as PAL publications and links to other peer learning programs ( The menu for this site is located at the upper right side of the web site. If study group leaders at other colleges would like to be interviewed for the program, please contact the podcast host, David Arendale,

Customer Reviews

PAL Coordinator

These short reflections by group study leaders provide specific and useful descriptions of activities as well as the rationale of why the facilitators chose them. The brief introduction by Dr. Arendale at the beginning of each episode on what to listen for makes it easy for the listener to get the most out of the podcast. These are valuable tools for training and development of both new and experienced study group leaders. I look forward to hearing more podcasts of PAL facilitators conducting science and humanities based PAL sessions.
