GNED 205 - Peer Education: An Introduction to the Practice of Students Helping Students


(2 hours) Prerequisites: minimum 2nd semester Freshman, 2.8 GPA, faculty/staff recommendation. This course introduces students to a broad range of effective approaches to peer education. We will explore the history and efficacy of peer education.  We will explore critical thinking, diverse learning modalities, and the impact of social-cultural differences on learning. Through discussion of theory and practice of various peer education strategies, you will learn to assess and revise your own learning practices and make use of this knowledge to communicate with students.  The course will also include experiential components such as team-building and presentation skills.  Students will also participate in an experiential assignment with two different campus departments to explore how what they are learning in the classroom might be beneficial to use as a peer educator at Charleston Southern University.
