Team-Based Learning: Getting beyond the basics.

January 30-31, 2009

Learn to harness the power of teams! A key to successful teaching with Team-Based Learning (TBL) is the proper design of team assignments. This workshop, building on our previous TBL workshop on the Spring of 2007, will focus on the essential elements of successful assignment design.

TBL creator Larry Michaelsen will lead participants to learn about the key characteristics of effective team assignments. Working in teams, participants will focus on re-designing their own assignments to make them more effective. There will also be time to discuss effective strategies for writing Readiness Assessment Tests.
