Team-Based Learning is a special form of collaborative learning that uses a specific sequence of individual work, group work, and immediate feedback to create a motivational educational setting. Students hold each other accountable for coming to class prepared and contributing to discussion, taking education and responsibility into their own hands. Please note: this workshop requires faculty to prepare beforehand by watching a short video and reviewing a three-page handout.
In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn to:
- Transition from traditional lecturing to methods that guide students to learn on their own
- Strategically form diverse teams in which students work together to help each other learn
- Motivate students to come to class prepared and ready to learn
- Generate energy and willing participation among students in class by using the four S’s of application exercises
- Apply the power of the Immediate Feedback Assessment Technique (IF-AT®) “scratch and win” method to engage students in collaborative learning
- Describe the characteristics of effective peer feedback methods
Dan Brown, PharmD, is the Director of Faculty Development at Palm Beach Atlantic University and Professor of Pharmacy Practice in the Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy. He is the former dean of the school of pharmacy and has over 35 years of experience in education. In 2011, Dr. Brown “flipped” one of his courses, Clinical Applications of Pharmacokinetic Dosing and Monitoring, by implementing methods of team-based learning. He was so impressed by his initial experience with this new teaching method that he subsequently completed a comprehensive program of instruction to become a certified team-based learning trainer-consultant. He has since conducted several workshops on the principles and practices of TBL.
