What happens in a peer education session?
Developed with expert partners, each session consists of creating a set of guidelines, discussing and defining key areas of the chosen topic before exploring ways to combat the issue being addressed, using a variety of techniques, so there is something for everyone. This encourages participation so that others can learn from their peers, gaining a more well-rounded understanding of the topic. Each session is tailor-made to suit the unit, with different activities for different age groups.
When would a session take place?
During your normal meeting time, on a previously arranged date. If your meeting is less than 90 minutes it may be best to split the session over two meetings, but this can be discussed.
