Join us for an EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative web seminar and a face-to-face discussion on Team Based Learning .
Team-Based Learning (TBL) is a powerful instructional methodology that transforms the focus for class time from the transmission of course content to helping students learn how to use course concepts to solve real-world problems. In the TBL process, students are required to read the course content prior to attending the class and are made accountable for contribution to team activities. TBL was developed at the University of Oklahoma Business School in the late 70’s by Larry Michaelsen, and is now used widely in business management and academia around the world
Larry Michaelsen will be facilitating the web seminar. Jim Sibley, a board member of the Team-Based Learning Collaborative and a mentor for their Train the Trainer program, will lead the face-to-face discussion afterward. This session is part of UBC’s Teaching and Learning with Technology series.
The Teaching and Learning with Technology series focuses on innovative ideas, emerging technologies, and effective practices related to the integration of technology into the teaching and learning environment. In its seventh season, the TLT Series typically sponsors 6-7 talks per year with speakers, selected by the Learning Technology Community and the TLT advisory committee, from UBC and beyond. The series is coordinated by the Office of Learning Technology.
Seminars in this series are open to everyone in the UBC community; they are offered at certain times during the year and you may register on the TAG website during those times.
