The current focus of the Peeragogy project is to create a useful handbook for self-selected co-learners. The Peeragogy Handbook is intended as a “how-to-do-it” resource, not a theoretical discourse. However, in support of the handbook, we’ve created and continue to maintain a literature review on the learning theories supporting peeragogy. Drawing in the experience and research of volunteer teams, we set out to address the following questions and answer them to the best of our ability:
- What does any group of learners need to know in order to co-learn a subject?
- How do they identify and qualify resources/texts, choose and use communication platforms, make decisions, organize informal learning spaces and/or more structured courses?
- How do they assess their learning?
