About the Event

  • Cost:  $395/participant
  • No pre-requisites
  • Two weeks in length
  • Facilitated
  • Asynchronous (expect to spend approx 8-10 hrs/week to complete workshop activities)
  • Small group (limited to 15 participants)

The Getting Started with Team-Based Learning online workshop focuses on using the principles of Team-Based Learning to design a course experience that focuses on helping students learn how to apply and use course concepts to solve problems, rather than remember the “facts” for the test. The TBL principles developed by Larry Michaelsen can be applied to any course regardless of subject matter or class size.

The online workshop is two weeks in length, so you will not have time to design an entire course, but by the end, you will have:

  • Designed a single, well-integrated TBL module
  • Developed module-level outcomes, module activities and student preparation materials and activities
  • Developed team formation and peer evaluation plan
  • Identified possible challenges you might face as you deliver your TBL course.

The workshop includes multiple opportunities for interaction and feedback from an experienced coach and other workshop participants. It's fast-paced, includes due dates for activities, and active participation is required.

Note:  You will need to purchase the book, Getting Started with Team-Based Learning prior to beginning the workshop. Either the ebook or paper copy is acceptable. Further purchase information is available upon completion of registration.

Registration closes October 11, 2018.
