This presentation discusses the implementation of a high-impact pedagogy, Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL), in a virtual environment. In particular, we will explore the similarities and differences between a Cyber Peer-Led Team Learning (cPLTL) condition and a face-to-face PLTL condition in an introductory chemistry course. Session attendees will be invited to group together with others who have laptops or other "connected" devices in order to participate in a mock cPLTL workshop.

Learning Objectives:
*Learn how cyber and face-to-face PLTL are alike and different in an introductory chemistry course
*Experience a mock cPLTL workshop environment and describe it
*Interact in a cPLTL environment and describe it
*Develop an action plan to implement cPLTL at their institution
