#TBLC20 Oral Presentations – Research & Scholarship Track

In an effort to still share with you the fruits of thousands of hours of research, writing and dedicated work, the TBLC Program Committee is happy to present the recordings of the slate of 2020 Oral Presentations. To view the presentations, visit https://teambasedlearning.site-ym.com/page/2020_orals. Abstracts are listed in one of three categories – Fundamentals, Innovation and Research & Scholarship.

Each category showcases work from educators around the globe implementing TBL in their own classrooms, both in-person and virtual. Presentations from the Research & Scholarship track include conclusions for those interested in presenting findings from educational research or research studies about TBL. Research submissions may be from descriptive, semi-quantitative (e.g., survey results), or quantitative (e.g., experimental) research. An example might be a poster entitled “Getting a research program started in your TBL course” or an oral presentation on “Evidence of standardized test performance gains in Pharmacy students following implementation of a TBL curriculum.”
