TBLC – Administrative Office Closed November 23-24

As those of us in the United States prepare for Thanksgiving, we would like to extend a sincere THANK YOU for being a part of our success and daily lives.

The TBLC Administrative Office will be closed on November 23-24, 2017 for the Thanksgiving holiday. We will resume normal business hours November 27.

We are truly grateful for the support you have provided to us at TBLC. As we begin looking forward to 2018, we are excited for the new opportunities that may lay ahead.

TBLC 2018 – Plenary Highlight: Boyd Richards

The 17th Annual TBLC Conference is just around the corner, and we would like you to get to know our keynote speakers! We have two keynote speakers this year, and we hope you enjoy their presentations.

Boyd Richards: Flying High: TBL and the Emergent Horizon

Using the metaphor of flight, Dr. Richards will share his perspective regarding the rise of TBL in health sciences education and its future course of influence on healthcare. More specifically, having been instrumental in starting the TBLC and then stepping away to focus on other initiatives, Dr. Richards, returns after more than 15 years to highlight the organization’s achievements and make predictions about achievements yet to come.

Announcing the TBLC Asia Pacific Coalition

I am pleased to announce the approval of the TBLC Asia Pacific Coalition by the Steering Committee at our September meeting. The interest in creating the Asia Pacific Coalition from our TBLC colleagues in that region and the support of this proposal by the Steering Committee emphasizes the global spread of TBL and the interest of the TBLC leadership in supporting TBL throughout the world.

The Asia Pacific Coalition came into existence through the leadership of Dr. Sandy Cook, Senior Associate Dean and Professor, DUKE-NUS (National University of Singapore) Medical School. Sandy’s leadership in TBL implementation and faculty development is extensive and well-known to many TBLC members, and the Steering Committee is grateful to Sandy for her leadership in founding the Asia Pacific Coalition. In addition to Sandy, who will chair the coalition, 16 TBLC colleagues from the region will join her as members of the various committees within the Asia Pacific Coalition. The growth of TBL in the Asia Pacific region has been tremendous and the creation of this coalition will further fulfill the region’s need for support of TBL practitioners.

The Asia Pacific Coalition joins the European TBL Community as our second official regional community of TBL practitioners. I am proud of the efforts of the TBLC leadership and JulNet, our management company, to support these international interests in TBL. Please know we remain committed to the global support of TBL and welcome your input as we continue down this path. On behalf of the TBLC Steering Committee, I extend a warm welcome to our new Asia Pacific Coalition.

TBLC President

TBLC Editorial Board Committee Update

The Team-Based Learning Collaborative (TBLC) would like to offer information and updates on all the committees that help to make TBLC an effective organization. This month, we’d like to present our Editorial Board and what it does for the Collaborative.

The TBLC Editorial Board facilitates the peer-review and publication of TBL modules submitted by the TBLC membership. The Editorial Board executive editor, Bonny Dickinson, PhD (Western Michigan University Homer Stryker, MD School of Medicine), associate editor, Lindsay Davidson, MD (Queens University School of Medicine), and TBLC Account Manager Danielle Inscoe (JulNet Solutions, LLC) work with reviewers and authors to publish peer-reviewed TBL modules to the TBLC resource bank. There are currently 70 ready-to-use TBL modules in the resource bank in the fields of business, management, health disciplines, basic science, history, and English literature. Modules are contributed by faculty from schools of medicine, schools of pharmacy, and colleges and universities. Nearly 50 TBLC members have contributed to the resource bank by serving as module reviewers.

We invite you to submit your TBL modules to the resource bank, serve a reviewer for the bank, and to access materials published to the TBLC resource bank on the TBLC website at http://www.teambasedlearning.org/tblc-resource-bank/.

We’d like to extend a sincere thank you to our 44 current reviewers for all of their hard work. If you have an interest in serving as a reviewer for the resource bank or would like more information about the resource bank and the editorial board, please contact Danielle Inscoe (TBLC Account Manager) at Danielle@tblcadmin.org.

Featured Member: Kevin Krane

N. Kevin Krane, MD, Professor of Medicine, Vice Dean for Academic Affairs
Tulane University School of Medicine
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Discipline: Nephrology

TBL Experience: I have been involved in TBL at many levels including presenting faculty development workshops, hosting the TBLC in New Orleans in 2010, and in my role as the academic dean, promoting the implementation of TBL in the curriculum at Tulane and other health care institutions. I like to emphasize how TBL addresses most of the competency domains we are expecting of our medical students. Currently I use TBL to teach kidney diseases to both first and second year medical students.

Mentoring Experiences: I have been using TBL for the last 7-8 years, serving as a TBL mentor for most of that time. I have provided “TBL 101” workshops at a number of other medical and allied health schools, and for TBLC pre-conference workshops.

Interesting: One of the most interesting and fun experiences I have had with TBL was providing TBL 101 workshops to faculty from the National University of Rwanda. Just like TBL students everywhere, they would “high-five” each other for correct answers on the IF-AT card!

Adaptions: I like using TBL principles to teach any topic. For example, we have incorporated group application exercises into patient safety training with TeamSTEPPS. in our courses at Tulane.

Research: With other colleagues, we have used TBL to generate scholarly work from our activities in TBL that has resulted in several poster presentations at medical education meetings including one demonstrating improved learning for lower quartile students using TBL and a published TBL Module on MedEdPortal.

How has the TBLC assisted me?: An essential aspect of effective educators is always growing through professional development. The TBLC provides an outstanding opportunity to learn new skills, enhance existing ones, and develop scholarly projects. But more importantly, the TBLC provides a community of colleagues who are interested in enhancing learning at every level of education and are excited about sharing and collaborating with all members.
