RMIT Peer Partnerships was established as a voluntary, university-wide professional development program in 2012.
The program was developed using evidenced-based best practice in professional learning. Over the past five years the program has had almost 500 participants from across the University. In the following publications we report on the positive outcomes Peer Partnerships has delivered for participants and the wider tertiary community.
