PLTL Overview

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. 

Enrollment and Policies

Enrollment is required. Ongoing attendance is essential for teamwork. Please read our policies for PLTL before enrolling. 

  • Coordinators will open workshop enrollment after they provide a brief presentation about the program in your chemistry class at the beginning of the semester.   
  • A minimum of 6 students is needed to launch each workshop.
