Plenary Session: The European Team-Based Learning Community

Presented: Thursday, January 7, 2021 at 9:30am GMT

“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 the students to take responsibility and be accountable for their own learning, to be able to explain key concepts, make a reasoned argument, and work well with others, including in an inter-professional setting. 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!”
