== Are you new to TBL and looking for an easy way to do peer evaluations?
== Have you been wondering which peer evaluation method to use - evaluation by categories or by balance points (Michaelsen method)?
== Which situations/purposes are these two methods best suited for?
== What does research and the experience of others at ISU say about this?
== Have you wanted to use balance points (Michaelsen method) but have wrestled with understanding what it's implementation look like (in terms of grading etc) - and how to explain it to your students?
== Are you wondering how the scores obtained from a peer evaluation should be distributed to your students and how it forms part of the grade?
== Have you used peer evaluation in ThinkSpace already and have questions/problems/support needs that you want addressed?

We welcome you to join the ThinkSpace Learning Community (TLC) where ISU faculty meet to create exceptional learning opportunities for students. Centering on ThinkSpace, an active learning and problem solving platform with a set of unique, powerful pedagogical tools, the TLC is designed to help you take your students' learning to higher levels-- learning that builds problem solving skills required in the workplace.

TLC colleagues exchange new ideas and novel ways of infusing active learning into face-to-face, online, blended learning or flipped classrooms. TLC meetings support veteran ThinkSpace users, new comers, as well as those "just curious." Members will showcase exemplary ThinkSpace use by faculty across campus and in many disciplines- encouraging discussions on best practices and experiences, facilitating research collaborations and brainstorming solutions to instructional problems. We invite you to join this supportive and vibrant community to help you create exciting learning experiences in your classrooms.
