Team-Based Learning (TBL): Group Work that Engages Students

Do your students prepare for class?

Are they actively engaged in learning?

Can they apply course concepts to solve real-world problems?

Are they developing skills for the workplace?

Who does most of the talking in your class?





·         In TBL, students are motivated and incentivised to prepare for class and cover the key course concepts before they meet with you


·         In a TBL class, students regularly work together and become an effective learning team. Teams learn from, with and about each other and are held accountable for their contributions to the team.


·         The focus of a TBL class is on the application of course concepts to solve authentic, challenging and real-world problems


·         TBL students develop the skills to communicate, collaborate, problem solve, justify their thinking, and learn autonomously.

·         Your role in a TBL classroom is to facilitate learning by drawing out the answers from the learning teams

Bradford School of Pharmacy invites you to attend a TBL Masterclass with Larry Michaelsen, Professor of Management at the University of Central Missouri, on Tuesday 10th June at the University of Bradford.

Developed by Larry, TBL is a special form of collaborative learning that uses a specific sequence of individual work, group work and feedback to create a motivational framework in which students increasingly hold each other accountable for coming to class prepared and contributing to discussion.

Team-based learning dramatically shifts the focus of classroom time away from content delivery by the teacher to the application of course content by student learning teams. These teams regularly work together to solve challenging, authentic and real-world problems, select a solution, and justify that solution to their peers in other teams.  TBL is designed to promote active, engaging and sustainable learning and develop transferable skills to enhance employability.

Larry Michaelsen, Professor of Management at the University of Central Missouri, will be leading a Masterclass and sharing over 30 years of experience of using TBL in Higher Education.

In addition to the Masterclass, speakers from Dundee Medical School, Plymouth School of Nursing and Bradford School of Pharmacy will share their recent experiences of using TBL in the UK.
