Introduction to 

Team-Based Learning



When educators make the decision to eliminate the lecture and adopt flipped or blended learning they are faced with what to replace it with, how to implement and measure results.   Team-based learning (“TBL”) provides an evidence-based methodology, a defined structure and data for evaluation.  TBL has been shown to improve outcomes and is aligned with 21st century skills.  This introductory workshop is designed to provide participants with enough understanding of TBL to decide if it is something they may want to try or learn more about.



Educators interested in learning about TBL and experienced TBL educators interested in experiencing TBL in a synchronous online modality.



This workshop will be conducted using the TBL methodology in a synchronous onlinemodality.




At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

1.Define the main components of TBL

2.Explain the benefits and considerations of TBL

3.Describe where to begin with designing a TBL course: backwards design and identifying resources

4.Experience TBL in an online synchronous modality
