Peer assists are face-to-face or virtual gatherings that bring colleagues together to share knowledge, best practices, or lessons learned on a particular topic. They can be an extremely useful learning activity to facilitate knowledge sharing, participatory learning, and collective problem solving. This document provides further information on the types of peer assists, assumptions and responsibilities, processes, lessons learned and resources.
Peer assists were one way that GROOVE Learning Network members supported each other within the network. Throughout the course of the grant, GROOVE members participated in a number of formalized peer assists to gather feedback on specific issues or questions.
