Apr 26, 2021 • 2min read


Team-based learning (TBL) is a structured small-group learning approach that breaks the mould of standard classroom teaching. Students are required to study the materials and come to class prepared to have a fruitful discussion with their peers. Time in class will be spent on group work and case study to deepen the understanding, instead of the usual lectures. 

It has been proven that the TBL approach can increase students’ overall understanding of the module and improve the retention of module contents through active engagement and participation in group and class discussions.
