What professor wouldn’t jump at the chance to create a learning environment like that?

Find out how you can create these conditions for yourself with this program.


The key is using Team-Based Learning, or TBL, to realize all the potential of the flipped classroom.

Students will develop a deep and enduring understanding, and you’ll be able to move beyond covering content to helping students use course concepts to solve interesting, significant problems.

TBL is a uniquely powerful and increasingly popular form of small group learning.

Implementing it successfully in your classroom requires rethinking your course and your role in its presentation.

You change to a developer and facilitator of high-quality learning events by creating the conditions necessary for students to learn the material at a deeper level.

By using TBL, teachers can enhance student learning, increase student engagement, and expand student expertise in problem-solving, all important and attainable goals.

Learning goals

After participating in this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize and express how your beliefs about content and your role as an instructor affect your teaching style
  • Identify the benefits of establishing a more active, learning-centered classroom
  • Describe how to connect with the team-based learning community
  • Formulate your own first step to begin transforming your courses to team-based learning

You’ll also receive a TBL handout, activity worksheet examples, and pointers to websites, books, and conferences.
