The flipped classroom took lectures out of the classroom, brought problem solving into the classroom, and otherwise turned traditional higher education pedagogy on its head. It has re-imagined learning and, in doing so, embraced strategies that used to cause consternation for educators and students alike.

Team-based learning is an effective educational strategy that gets students to work collaboratively, develop accountability, solve complex problems, and engage in stimulating classroom discussion. It creates a culture of learning in every classroom.

This evidence-based pedagogical approach is universally adaptable—it works in any discipline, at any level. It also adds variety to your instruction, which keeps students engaged. Team-based learning is a powerful tool you can use to improve the classroom experience along with student success and satisfaction. 

A Simple Introduction to Team-Based Learning is a new resource that delivers the essential strategies, insights, and information on team-based learning so you can try it with the courses you already teach.

  • Show you where to start with team-based learning
  • Explain how to form and manage effective learning teams
  • Prepare you to design your own team-based activities
  • Guide you through assigning preparatory work
  • Show you how to use peer evaluation to gauge the effectiveness of the teams
