What is “peer-based learning”?

Peer learning encourages students to form relationships with one another by positioning experienced students as a resource for novices, while also giving students at the same level the opportunity to learn and teach as they work together. It means that you will be working with other students on projects throughout your time at Holberton.

Why are your courses project based?

Real work environments don’t rely on tests, lectures, and memorization; they rely on people having the necessary skills to work with a team to execute tasks.
