How to share learning with your peers

When you learn something important, pass it on!

Inside you will find guidance on giving presentations, running group sessions, generating social media content and expressing yourself through art.

Overview

Originally designed to be a companion pack for the Democracy Ambassadors programme, this handy toolkit will support students who would like to share their learning about democracy and a range of other citizenship topics with their peers.

It contains ideas for different kinds of peer-to-peer sharing, examples of what’s been done successfully already, and top tips for making it work and for keeping students safe.

There’s also an Action Plan at the back to help guide students in deciding their next steps.
