Title: Investigating the Peer Teaching Role in Interprofessional Peer-Assisted Learning
Authors: Kapelus, Gary

Issue Date: 30-Sep-2013
Abstract: Study set out to explore the benefits and challenges perceived by students acting as peer teachers for students of other healthcare professions and to determine if this form of student experience advances interprofessional engagement and learning. 36 senior students, from four healthcare professions (Dental Hygiene, Denturism, Fitness & Lifestyle Management, and Hearing Instrument Specialist) volunteered to teach individuals and groups of students of another profession in one of four peer-assisted learning scenarios. We learned that students enjoyed and benefited from their volunteer interprofessional peer teaching experiences. They reported opportunities to improve their own teaching and communication skills and to learn more about the students and profession that they were teaching. Students confirmed that interprofessional peer teaching provides a relevant and effective vehicle for interprofessional engagement and learning. *The author gratefully acknowledges the assistance of Stephanie Clar (Student Research Assistant) and Dr Sherry Espin, Ryerson University (Project Advisor)
