Welcome to a workshop on teaching and learning with Centre for the Advancement of University Teaching (CeUL).

Useful for: Professors, lecturers and other teachers.

Small group-based instructional methods can produce a wide variety of positive educational outcomes. These outcomes, however, only occur when instructors create conditions which motivate students to prepare for and engage in give-and-take discussions.

Fortunately, by applying three fundamental principles, instructors can create these conditions in the vast majority of learning groups. These principles are:

1) promoting individual and group accountability

2) using assignments that link and mutually reinforce individual work, group work and total class discussions

3) adopting practices that stimulate give-and-take interaction within and between groups. 

In this workshop you will be introduced to the basics of team based learning and discuss the opportunities to introduce the principles in your own teaching.

At the end of this workshop, the participants will be able to:

  • Describe the fundamental principles that foster active learning in small groups.
  • Identify the key elements of TBL sessions.
  • Appreciate the value of the back ward design.
  • Define the 4 –“S” sof effective applications.
  • Identify barriers to implementation and strategize solutions.
