Benefits of Working with Peers

Advice from an Experienced Engineering Educator

The PDF document Making Effective Use of your Peers is an excerpt from the book Studying Engineering: A Road Map to a Rewarding Career by Raymond B. Landis, former Dean of Engineering and Technology, California State University, Los Angeles. The book is published by Discovery Press, Los Angeles CA 90063. The examples are from engineering, but much of the content applies to all disciplines.

The excerpt here was kindly supplied to your instructor by Professor Landis, with the request that you offer feedback about whether you found its content helpful in this course, and more generally for your program of study at UConn. After reading it, or later after you have had a chance to put its ideas into practice, please share your reaction with Prof. Hurley, who will summarize the feedback for Prof. Landis at the end of the semester.
