Engaging students in critical thinking online using Team Based Learning™

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

This quick talk will reflect on increasing student engagement using Team-Based Learning™ (TBL). Student interest in the topic & personal self-regulation have been correlated with cognitive, emotional engagement and engaged behaviours (e.g. responding/participating).1This means that engaging students with dry, theoretical material may be reliant on their own personal self-regulation skills; a fraught challenge! TBL is a flipped classroom strategy which engages students through peer learning, interesting problem solving challenges, and the engagement of critical thinking and critical feedback skills.2 TBL can be used with both small and large class groups, places responsibility for learning with the student, and reinforces this through peer interaction.2 This quick talk will reflect on increasing student engagement using Team-Based Learning™ (TBL).
