Joel Topf is a keen nephrology blogger and postgraduate teacher who has recently become involved in a new undergraduate programme. Read his enthusiastic account of Team-Based Learning for second year students in Detroit.
The concept of team-based learning is over 30 years old. It was the invention of Larry Michaelson at the Univ Oklahoma Business Schoo. It looks something like a cross between Flipped Teaching and Problem Based Learning, with a dash of competition and point-scoring to catalyse the mix. An important difference from PBL is the key role for an expert. Very clever. Looks very good.
