Team Based Learning: Developing Curriculum to Build Competence, Critical Thinking, and Collaboration
Monday, October 21st, 2019
10:45 AM - 12:15 PM: Breakout
This proposal is designed to follow Team Based Learning™ 101: Flipping the Training Room to Develop Competence, Critical Thinking, and Collaboration. It can also be taken as a stand-alone workshop.
Team-Based Learning (TBL) is an evidence-based, collaborative learning and teaching strategy that provides active learning opportunities to apply course concepts to build understanding and competence. This session addresses writing curriculum for the flipped training room using TBL. In this session, participants will learn the process of developing a TBL module and will create an Application Activity.
This innovative teaching method encourages learners to engage deeply to solve realistic problems. TBL was developed in the late 1970's by Larry Michaelsen, using group activities and assignments to engage a large number of students to apply knowledge in the classroom. Today, TBL is used extensively in higher and professional education and is also entering public, non-profit, and corporate training. The Pennsylvania Child Welfare Resource Center has incorporated TBL throughout its curriculum and training delivery to onboard its trainers and in its certification series for new child welfare professionals, Foundations in Child Welfare Practice: Building Competence, Confidence, and Compassion.
