Team-Based Learning in the Online Classroom

Team-based learning (TBL) has become a popular method for learning and applying difficult concepts in health science schools in recent years, and for good reason! TBL not only allows students to receive immediate feedback on how they apply their knowledge to difficult concepts, but it promotes communication and collaboration among students and teammates, and may even be a way to promote interprofessional education (IPE) activities. This 30-minute webinar will discuss some best practices for implementing TBL in an online classroom setting, including various tools and strategies that will help students navigate TBL virtually.

Learning objectives:
1. Explain the fundamental concepts of Team-Based Learning (TBL).
2. Describe readiness-assurance tests (RATs) and how scratch-off tests provide immediate feedback.
3. Discuss methods for implementing TBL in a live-online learning environment.
