Why TBL?

Team-Based Learning (TBL) is a unique and powerful form of small group learning that enables you to realize the full potential of the flipped classroom by providing coherent organizational structures to design your entire course. By using TBL you can ensure that your students come to class prepared and then help them build on their preparation to turn them into masters at applying the course content to solve problems.

At its heart, TBL is about student teams making judgements and difficult decisions – based on complex data analysis – then publicly committing to those decisions and quickly and efficiently getting focused feedback on the quality of their decision-making. This decision and feedback loop helps students clarify their thinking and deepen their learning.
