Peer learning days typically come after the deadline of a project. They start promptly at 9 am, and groups of 6-10 students are pre-assigned. Students spend the entire day going over the project that they all just finished. If there are group members that didn’t get everything done, now is the time to help them out - not by giving answers, but helping them find the answers themselves. Holberton is much more focused on comprehension than completion - it is very typical that the majority of the group got the entire project done, but that does not mean that you understood all of it. Peer learning days are about talking though any confusion and finding clarification.
