     View Summary

    This study seeks to achieve improved teaching by introducing SCOT (Students Consulting on Teaching) and developing training programs for student consultants.
    The SCOT program offers teachers the opportunity to receive feedback on class activities from an unbiased student perspective. It supports student-centered learning; a shift from the traditional; i.e., teacher-centered, approach. SCOT students, therefore, become critical agents of change in this effort.
