Team Based Learning

Team-Based learning (TBL) is the application of small-group, active-learning methods in an environment in which students are held responsible for both individual and group learning. Teams collaborate on application assignments during class. All teams simultaneously share their consensus answers with the entire class for easy comparison and immediate feedback. This leads to class discussion with teams defending their answers and the course facilitator helping to consolidate learning. The original idea for TBL came from Larry Michaelsen at the University of Oklahoma in the 1970s. Some resources on TBL are provided below.
