Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) involves students working cooperatively in small groups, led by trained undergraduate 'peer leaders'. PLTL has been used successfully for many years in Chemistry and other science courses to improve retention, boost grades, and increase students' enthusiasm for the subject. With funding from NSF, eight universities (listed below with links to their program sites) have been applying PLTL in Computer Science for the past three years.
