lecture breakers podcast college teaching active learning team based learning



In episode 51 of the Lecture Breakers podcast, we are continuing our conversation with Dr. Hugh Clements-Jewery about Team-Based Learning.

Hugh is an associate professor in physiology, and he’s a certified trainer consultant in TBL. In part 1, we talked about the overall structure and design of TBL and why it’s such a powerful teaching strategy.

Now, in part 2, we are digging into the specifics and the logistics of creating successful TBL learning experiences. We discuss questions such as: How do you form teams? What if a team is not working together well? What if students aren’t prepared? What about assessment? And what does TBL look like in an online course?

When you listen to both of these episodes, it's a masterclass in Team-Based Learning! I hope these conversations will help you prepare to break up your lectures with team-based learning experiences.

What you'll learn: 

  • Advice on how to form and manage teams.

  • Getting student buy-in to the TBL process.

  • How to create authentic problems for teams.

  • How to assess and evaluate students' learning and participation.

  • How to transition TBL to an online course.
