Join us in St. Petersburg, Florida for the 14th Annual TBLC Conference, March 4-7, 2015!
The Team-Based Learning Collaborative (TBLC) invites educators to attend our 14th annual Conference on Team-Based Learning scheduled for March 4-7, 2015 at the Hilton Bayfront hotel in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA.
The TBLC is a group of educators dedicated to supporting faculty that have implemented, or wish to implement, Team-Based Learning(tm). Our past Conferences have been attended by educators from many different disciplines and K-12 education, and from many different institutions around the world. As the 'word cloud' below illustrates, educators find TBLC Conferences educational, inspiring, and, quite often, just plain fun!
Pre-Conference Workshops are scheduled for March 4th. Pre-Conference workshop choices include Team-based Learning 101, Creating a Team-based Learning Module, and Becoming a Team-Based Learning Trainer-Consultant.
The Conference, itself, will take place March 5-7, 2015, and will open with a plenary by Dr. Eric Mazur, professor of physics at Harvard University, developer of the Peer Instruction interactive teaching methodology, and producer of the award-winning Interactive Teaching DVD. Dr. Mazur’s plenary, Flat Surface, Deep Learning, is sure to be an exciting start to our Conference.
The Conference will include hands-on workshops, data-based oral presentations, and poster sessions. Workshops will be organized around fundamentals, innovation, and scholarship tracks. While Fundamentals sessions will provide attendees with the basics of Team-Based Learning and how to do it, Innovation and Scholarship sessions will challenge attendees to further develop their skills or to collect/ analyze/ publish their data on Team-Based Learning.
Finally, the Conference location offers a variety of fun possibilities for your free time, including touring the Dali Museum, visiting nearby Saint Pete Beach, or opting for fishing and swimming at Fort De Soto Park.
We hope to see you in Saint Petersburg, Florida, next spring!
