"The research-based flipped classroom and team-based learning (TBL)," is an increasingly-popular form of flipped-classroom where small-group learning that can be implemented effectively in small or large classes.

TBL was originally developed nearly 40 years ago by a professor of organizational psychology to maximize the power of teams, and carefully designed to avoid the pitfalls of small group learning. TBL provides students with a more intimate, small class feel even in large theater-style classrooms with fixed seats. TBL teachers report high levels of student attendance, preparation, participation and critical thinking. TBL students report enjoying class and being more motivated and actively engaged. Collaboration in teams builds student problem-solving skills that are valued by employers in real-life workplace environments. Just like on the job, participants are expected to be responsible and prepared as individuals and then bring their best efforts into group activities. This workshop will equip participants to utilize TBL in their own classrooms.

** This Team-Based Learning Workshop Series (TBL) meets once weekly for four consecutive weeks on Wednesdays for Spring 2021: April 7, 14, 21, and 28 (2:15-4:15 p.m., via zoom) **
