Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)

Publications

The PASS program at UTAS uses a body of literature to inform best practise in the ongoing development and implementation of the program.

PASS at UTAS also contributes to this body of literature based upon our own research.

Below is a selection of publications relating to peer learning and the UTAS PASS program.
