Do you want to use classroom time effectively? Want student engagement in the classroom? Need to teach “soft skills” without cutting content?
Team-Based Learning (TBL) is not your typical teamwork experience. TBL uses the flipped classroom model to first prepare students for in-class activities. Then, by using a proven sequence of in-class activities, students solve problems and use the pre-assignment knowledge to go deeper into analysis. Students practice not only teamwork and problem-solving skills, but also critical thinking and communication skills when they report and defend their answers to the entire class.
The advantages of using TBL in the classroom include: (1) Students are held accountable for individual (pre-class) and group (in-class) work. (2) The responsibility for learning shifts from the instructor to the students, promoting lifelong learning skills. (3) The majority of class time is used for team assignments that use the course content applied to large, difficult problems. (4) The students are actively engaged during class time.
