What

Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) is a semester-long problem-solving workshop. The goal of the program is to increase student success in undergraduate general chemistry I and II courses.

During weekly 90-minute workshops, students work together to learn how to solve difficult problems through practice. Workshops are facilitated by trained student leaders who earned a B or higher in the courses they support. Our leaders work closely with chemistry faculty in preparation for each workshop.
