Engaging students with dry, theoretical material is often very challenging and occupational therapy theory and processes is no different. Team-based learning offers the advantages of engaging students in completing the content pre-work before they come to class, challenging them to apply the knowledge in class, and developing critical thinking and critical feedback skills (Sibley, 2014). Team based learning proved to be very adaptable to the online environment, and students reported feeling engaged and looking forward to their online learning activities. This session will allow you to experience online team-based learning and how it could work for your students.

|Other||UT is replacing our planned 2020 conference in Padua with a virtual conference, to be held on the original dates of July 1-3, with bonus extended access. This virtual conference will have two themes—our original theme of “Toward Sustainable Assessment” and a second theme, “The Online Pivot,” about teaching in a virtual environment.|
The 45th IUT conference will feature many of our traditional offering—papers, posters, roundtables, and plenary addresses—some live and some posted for access before and after the conference. Participants will enjoy unlimited access to all conference materials online through September 30th. In addition, we will offer networking and group chat opportunities, including a robust online forum, with both synchronous and asynchronous options to participate on your schedule. Finally, building on this virtual conference, we plan to make our website a year-round resource for the university teaching community.
