Team Based Learning Workshop: Part 1 (Thursday 9th May 2019, 10.00-13.00)

Facilitator: Prof. Josie Fraser, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, The Open University, United Kingdom

Facilitator: Prof. Alison Hartley, Associate Dean, University of Bradford, United Kingdom

Team-based learning (TBL) is a highly structured “flipped classroom” teaching method that solves common challenges encountered in healthcare education. What do we all want to achieve? We want enquiring students, who are able to study information independently outside of the classroom, and can then use that information to solve scientific or clinical problems with their colleagues, creatively. We want good engagement, with students showing up in the classroom having done their background reading. TBL as a method really does deliver all this, and while it is a significant change in ways of working and thinking for educators, most of us who have taught using TBL would *never* go back to lectures!

Great discussions on the definition of groups and teams - how would you define them?

Some great discussions taking place about culture and TBL but some helpful insight from Josie and Alison - TBL is best to be summative as this engages the students! The pre-reading needs to be clear with some self-testing of knowledge to check understanding - again this is only done when marks are allocated against the task.
