The peer learning session was an experience that made us (students) explain a topic with the help of the teacher. These sessions gave me an idea to experience what it is like to be a teacher, and the amount of research and preparation they go through to conduct the class and explain it to us. Since it is between the teachers and my classmates there wasn’t any pressure of making a mistake, which I undoubtedly made, as mistakes can help with identifying your flaws and what you don’t understand in the topic itself. The quote “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” by Albert Einstein, I believe that this shows in a session like this, that how well you present the topic is also a presentation of your own understanding. To conclude I feel like these sessions are fun and informative as you can understand your own mistakes within the concept, and would like to have more of this or similar sessions happening in class.
