Team-Based Learning Practitioner's Workshop
TBL: From Interest to Implementation
So you've heard of the pedagogical approach called Team-based Learning (TBL), and maybe you even attended last year's workshop on it at UMBC. Now you might be ready to consider how you would redesign one of your courses to use this teaching strategy, but the prospect of a complete redesign is intimidating. Following last year's Introduction to TBL, this year's workshop will provide participants with more specific examples of TBL in practice, a lunch Q&A panel with UMBC TBL faculty, and time to design a TBL unit in their own courses. If you missed last year's workshop, there will be brief demos to illustrate basics, but ample time to focus on keys to success, including writing good questions and application exercises. Attendees will receive a copy of Team-based Learning: Small Group Learning's Next Big Step as a further resource. Lunch is provided. To attend, please register here.
Please read the TBL Handout and the attached document before you come, and bring one course unit or module you would be interested in redesigning with TBL.
