Itís time to tackle team-based learning.

It has re-imagined learning and, in doing so, embraced strategies that used to cause consternation for educators and students alike.

What used to be known as group work has evolved into an effective tool for teaching students to work collectively and collaboratively, increasing studentsí aptitude for solving complex problems, facilitating stimulating class dialogue, and preparing students to effectively and meaningfully evaluate their peers.
