Want to use group work in class but not sure where to start?

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

University Center : 310
Have you thought about using group work in class, but didn’t know where to start? Or have you used groups but with less success than you’d like?  Please join your colleagues for a discussion on the pedagogical approach known as Team-Based Learning (TBL).  TBL is a specific structured format that encourages students to prepare for class, engage with groups during class, and reflect on their learning.  During this session, faculty who use TBL (either in its entirety or selected aspects) will discuss their goals for student learning and how TBL helps address them, the structure of their TBL-based classes, the positive outcomes they’ve experienced, and any challenges they still encounter.

Panelists include: Milvia Hernandez, MLLI, Anita Komlodi, Information Systems, Kal Nanes, Mathematics and Statistics, Anne Spence, Mechanical Engineering, and Cynthia Wagner, Biology. Lunch will be provided.
