Preparing students for TBL


This module provides an introduction to any TBL course. It is designed to overcome student resistance (and even hostility) to a teaching approach that requires them to pre-learn course materials for assessment in class, and to quickly build a positive and productive learning culture in student teams, and in the classroom as a whole. This session prepares students for the course as a whole by establishing healthy teamwork very quickly. It makes following class sessions very productive and efficient.
