Introduction to Team-Based Learning

by Brian O'Dwyer

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.

Transitioning to TBL for a

Transnational Nursing Program

by Rob Burton

When faced with large class sizes, creating active learning within large lecture classes can be challenging, particularly with an audience used to more didactic and receptive learning approaches. In order to address this Team Based Learning is a useful tool to develop engagement, participation and application in such large classes. This session will outline the implementation of TBL in Transnational Nurse Education.

Empowering TBL with Technology

by Brian O'Dwyer

How do educators automate some of the manual processes involved in implementing TBL? This workshop walks participants through the experience of using Team-Based Learning with InteDashboard. InteDashboard automates grading in IRATs, TRATs, Application Cases and Peer Evaluation. It also provides real time data on student performance so that educators can better predict the gaps in their students' understanding. InteDashboard is used by 95 institutes across five continents to automate their TBL classes.

Scaling up the use of Team-Based Learning

by Simon Tweddell

How do educators overcome challenges such as selling TBL to senior managers/administrators, achieving buy in, assuring quality and consistency, and faculty development?

Facilitated by an academic who has introduced TBL as the main learning and teaching strategy for an undergraduate pharmacy program in the UK and led a project to scale-up TBL more widely within an institution, this workshop aims to explore the benefits and challenges of using TBL at scale and discuss how some of the challenges can be overcome.

Peer Evaluation – the Achille’s heel of TBL

by Chris Burns

Like the Achille’s tendon, peer evaluation provides foundational support to TBL that promotes individual accountability and team cohesion. It is also a key point of vulnerability. There is risk that focusing on point systems, evaluation forms, grading, and other details may undermine the intrinsic value of peer evaluation and lead to resistance or push-back. In this workshop, participants will consider their goals for using peer evaluations and ways to achieve them. The workshop is facilitated by a TBLC Consultant-Trainer who has implemented TBL in five medical schools and trained others in TBL across disciplines and learner levels.
