Free Research Webinar Assessing Professional Behaviors in Pre-Clerkship Medical Students Using the “Team” in Team-Based Learning

In next month’s free TBLC webinar, presenter Amanda Emke from Washington University School of Medicine will discuss assessing professional behaviors in pre-clerkship medical students in a team setting. Preclinical physician training often focuses on individual knowledge acquisition as students work individually and indirectly with faculty assessors. Therefore, the assessment of professionalism in preclinical training allowing for longitudinal assessment and early recognition of at-risk behaviors continues to present challenges. Team-Based Learning (TBL), with peer interactions at its instructional core, provides unique opportunities for direct observation of professional behaviors. Dr. Emke and her team developed a novel assessment strategy using paired self- and peer-assessments of professional behaviors observed during TBL sessions.

The Team-Based Learning Collaborative (TBLC) is offering two unique opportunities to learn about team-based learning at their regional workshops in Phoenix, Arizona and Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. 

TBLC19 Reg AZ

TBL Regional Workshop – Phoenix, AZ
Saturday, September 14, 2019
9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Embassy Suites by Hilton Phoenix Airport
Faculty Instructors: Judi Bradetich and Chris Burns

TBLC19 Reg PA

TBLC Regional Workshop – Mechanicsburg, PA
Saturday, September 21, 2019
9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Pennsylvania Child Welfare Resource Center
Faculty Instructors: Liz Winter and Sarah Leupen

Each of these all-day sessions will offer 2 workshops:

Fundamental Principles and Practices of TBL
This workshop will be an introduction to Team-Based Learning™ (TBL) conducted in the TBL format. Participants will be given a preparatory assignment, divided into teams, given individual and team readiness assurance tests with immediate feedback, and achieve consensus with their team on a set of increasingly challenging application-based questions.

 The goal of this workshop is for participants to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the fundamental components, the sequence of events, and the benefits of TBL. Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the essential principles and components of Team-Based Learning (TBL).
  • Explain how and why TBL works.
  • Discuss the benefits of using TBL.
  • Illustrate how to transform a small group into a productive learning team.

Creating an Effective TBL Module
This workshop is for educators who have completed the introductory workshop on Team-Based Learning™ – TBL 101. The entire workshop is conducted in a TBL format and there is an advance assignment.

Participants will practice and develop skills for creating effective Team-Based Learning modules by participating in the following activities:

  • a clarification of the process and importance of readiness assurance
  • differentiation of the levels and types of application exercise questions
  • an opportunity to practice writing objectives for an application exercise writing an application exercise and comparing and contrasting the application exercises of others

2. You may also be interested in attending the following event in Nottingham, England on Friday 28th June.

Active Collaborative Learning for Student Success
28th June 2019
Nottingham Trent University

We have interesting findings to share from our project for the OFS Addressing Barriers to Student Success programme. The project was led by Nottingham Trent University, in collaboration with Anglia Ruskin University and the University of Bradford. We investigated whether the use of active, collaborative learning at large scale can address progression and attainment gaps.

The news is good. We will share our findings and reflect on lessons learnt for adoption of SCALE-UP and Team-Based Learning at scale.

I hope you can join us on the day. You can book a place at: www.ntu.ac.uk/about-us/events/events/2019/06/scaling-up-active-collaborative-learning-for-student-success. If you have questions, please contact: loyin.olotuumoren@ntu.ac.uk.

3. Please do extend this invitation to colleagues, if you think they might be interested.If you have any TBL news from Europe that you’d like to be published in the next TBLC Newsletter please send me details by 15th May. This might include any conferences where you’ve presented on TBL, any visitors who are interested in TBL that you’ve hosted or any TBL research or scholarship publications you’ve had.

4. Finally, if you are interested in joining our ETBLC Board, please do let me know. We meet virtually, approximately monthly with an annual face-to-face meeting. You can find more information about our vision here and our board members here. We are particularly interested in hearing from European TBLC members outside the UK as we are keen to expand our membership and influence further into Europe.
