PASS is a teaching initiative derived from the American model of Supplemental Instruction (SI), which involves using senior students (PASS leaders) to facilitate group learning in modules you have successfully completed.
The rationale behind these modules is to train you in the basic elements of PASS thereby enabling you to facilitate study sessions for groups of lower year students in a non-threatening environment. In doing so, it will allow for the revision of material and the development of key employability skills. You will be expected to work in pairs to facilitate weekly study sessions (one hour) with groups of students from the year below. You will also be expected to attend weekly debrief sessions, lasting approximately 30 minutes. In addition, you must attend two days of training and complete the associated assessment activities.
You will be expected to attend the training workshops, facilitate weekly discussion groups and attend weekly debrief sessions. In addition, you will be required to keep a weekly reflective diary and write a 500 word review of your experience with the PASS process.
