This live stream will introduce and explore an alternative method of learning called Team-based learning (TBL). TBL is a collaborative learning and teaching strategy that enables people to follow a structured process to enhance student engagement and the quality of student or trainee learning.
The term and concept were first introduced in a graduate business education context at the University of Oklahoma by Larry Michaelsen, in the late 1970s, since then TBL has been adopted in many disciplines across the world and has had a positive impact on the learning experience of students. In the early 2000s, the TBL concept made its way to medical education.
Today, enabled by technological advancement and the ability to deliver this learning strategy to large scale student classes virtually, TBL is becoming an established instructional approach within several medical schools globally.
On the surface, TBL bears similarities to an earlier North American export Problem-Based Learning (PBL), which emerged out of McMaster University School of Medicine in the 1960s. Both approaches leverage teamwork to enable concept familiarity. However, TBL has a more defined and staged sequence of in-class activities and relies upon the successful implementation of the following stages of learning exercises:
- Individual pre-work
- Individual Readiness Assurance Test (IRAT)
- Team Readiness Assurance Test (TRAT)
- Clarification session
- Application exercises
- Peer evaluation
During this live stream, fundamental questions surrounding TBL will be examined such as; is TBL a renewed form of PBL or a fundamental shift in medical education? What are the educational principles and evidence-base that underpins this approach? Why haven’t more medical schools adopted TBL on a large scale?
This live stream will enable you to:
- Understand the philosophy behind TBL
- Learn about the structure and technique of TBL
- Understand the advantages and disadvantages of TBL compared to Traditional Teaching
CPD learning applied.
