University of Westminster staff are invited to attend the Team-based Learning workshop on Wednesday 5th April from 12.30 – 3.00pm (lunch provided), at 115 New Cavendish Street, Room C1.03. The workshop will be facilitated by Simon Tweddell, Fellow of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and a Principal Fellow of the Higher Educational Academy.
This workshop aims to introduce participants to team-based learning (TBL) by experiencing it as a student would. TBL is a special form of collaborative learning using a special sequence of individual work, group work and immediate feedback to create a motivational framework in which students increasingly hold each other accountable for coming to class prepared and contributing to discussion. It shifts the focus of classroom time from conveying course concepts by the instructor to the application of course concepts by student learning teams.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Explain the essential elements that make up a team-based learning unit
- Describe the benefits and challenges of using TBL
