Welcome to PATS
Welcome to the Peer Assisted Teaching Scheme (PATS) website. Here you will find everything you could ever want to know about PATS, including a description of the scheme and its background, an outline of the PATS process, newsletters, resources and more!
The Peer Assisted Teaching Scheme aims to inform and equip academics with skills and strategies to reinvigorate their units. It provides opportunities for teachers to share ideas; to discuss improvements and to develop future educational innovations. The overarching aim of PATS is to contribute to the development of a culture within the Australian Higher Education sector of valuing and enhancing the quality of the student learning experience.
