The Peer Coaching Program (PCP) is designed to facilitate and enhance student learning and help create an avenue for interaction among students by employing a trajectory that participants are more familiar and comfortable with. The program fosters a collaborative environment where students can learn from each other and derive motivation for learning in a non-hierarchical setting.
