TBL 101: An Exciting & Interactive Alternative to Lecture-based Teaching
This workshop is the single best introduction to team-based learning (TBL). It will be conducted in the TBL format, so participants will be expected to prepare ahead by reading a pre-workshop assignment, take a readiness assurance test during the session, and engage actively with their assigned team members. The structure, process, and essential characteristics of an effective TBL module will be emphasized.
By the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
Explain the key components of a successful TBL module.
Outline how they would construct a TBL module from a set of objectives.
Describe how they might convert a course/lecture they already teach into a TBL module.
Illustrate how to transform a small group into a productive learning team.
