The office has sponsored sessions on Team Based Learning (TBL 101 and 102). TBL 101 is a freestanding session that introduces the learner to TBL, a theoretically based and empirically grounded tool designed to maximize the effectiveness of learning. It also holds students accountable for attending class prepared to participate and playing an active role in their team's performance. This method of teaching is being adopted in medical schools throughout the country and has been shown to be a highly effective instructional strategy. As a follow-up to the TBL 101 workshop, TBL 202 offers a six-session series to assist faculty participants in creating their own TBL activity.
