Learning by Teaching

Learning by teaching is a mode of learning where students are expected to comprehend material and then prepare presentations or a lesson plan to teach their peers. This method is intended to help the presenter enhance their own understanding of the material. This term is synonymous with the protégé effect, which suggests teaching others also helps you learn at the same time.

Learning by teaching encourages students to take on the role of a teacher in order to enhance their learning experience through collaboration. This education-based method helps learners build on their creativity, communication and presentation skills—which are valuable in the modern workplace.
