Abstract

Peer-assisted teaching and learning continues to grow internationally as a useful pedagogical strategy in health professional education. Paramedics are continually engaged in teaching students, other health professionals, patients and their families - so experience teaching peers during their university education may increase their confidence when teaching as a paramedic. This project aims to explore: i) third-year students experiences of teaching and assessing junior students, and ii) first-year students experiences of being taught and assessed by senior students.
