Keynote: Team-Based Learning: Group Work that Works

Speaker: Dr. Michael Sweet

Teachers are increasingly looking for ways to engage students in classes across the disciplines, and Team-Based Learning is a “flipped classroom” pedagogy that is enjoying widespread adoption. In this workshop, you will experience Team-Based Learning (TBL), an instructional strategy that both teachers and students have reported increasing levels of student attendance, preparation, participation and critical thinking. Dr. Michael Sweet has published and presented widely on TBL, and will be leading participants through a flipped-classroom experience using TBL. Upon completing this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the structural flaw in most “traditional” forms of group work

  • Identify three important distinctions between TBL and other forms of group work

  • Describe the four practical elements of TBL

  • Begin designing an effective and enjoyable group assignment
