CETL Workshop

PLTL Workshop Education

PLTL Workshops are small groups of students who meet each week to solve challenging problems under the guidance of a “near peer,” a student who has recently completed the course successfully. At Rochester, CETL collaborates with a range of academic departments to sustain the high quality of current PLTL Workshops to explore new uses of this model of cooperative learning.

Study Zone

The Study Zone is a quiet place to work where students commit to spend at least three hours a week to benefit from planning and debriefing sessions with a student leader.
