The move from a physical environment to a virtual environment altered how the Academic Success Centre at Bow Valley College could deliver Peer Tutoring services. This video will explore how the Practical Nursing Peer Tutor model was reinvented with a commitment to building an online community of learners (both between Peer Tutor/Peer Tutor and between Peer Tutor/Tutee). PN Peer Tutoring changed from drop-in study groups to a combination of bookable online appointments, an online peer-led workshop series and online study groups. Design, implementation and usage of virtual PN Peer Tutoring will be presented through a staff perspective, a peer tutor perspective and a student user perspective.
