Description

The Impact and Experiences of Delivering a Programme using Team-Based Learning (TBL)

Presented by Dr Simon Tweddell Senior Lecturer, University of Bradford and Rebecca McCarter,Educational Development Consultant, University of Bradford

Seminar Details

Team-Based Learning is a learner-centred structured approach to the ‘flipped’ classroom designed to engage students through a process of preparation, assessment and application of knowledge (Michaelson & Sweet, 2012). It shifts the focus of classroom time from conveying course concepts by the teacher to the application of course concepts by student learning teams. This interactive workshop will introduce participants to TBL by ensuring they experiencing it as a student would. They will learn in teams and encounter a ‘Readiness Assurance Process’ and a number of application exercises designed to explore the benefits and challenges of large scale implementation across an academic programme (Nelson & Tweddell, 2017). This will also include a practical demonstration of how TBL develops assessment ‘as’ and ‘for’ learning.
