#TBLC20 Featured Workshop Self and Peer Assessment

With the 2020 TBLC Meeting just around the corner, we would like to bring attention to one of our featured workshops: Self and Peer Assessment: More Than Just Accountability? A Re-Evaluation in Light of Backwards Design. This session will be presented by Emile Boutin and Dominique Murphy from the MGH Institute of Health Professions. We hope you enjoy this session!

Title: Self and Peer Assessment: More Than Just Accountability? A Re-Evaluation in Light of Backwards Design 
Presented by: Emile Boutin – MGH Institute of Health Professions
Dominique Murphy – MGH Institute of Health Professions
Date: Monday, March 16, 2020
Time: 10:00 AM – 11:45 AM

Have you struggled with making self and peer assessment an integral and valuable part of TBL? Would you like a way to develop soft skills in your students that are not explicitly taught in your curriculum, but are needed in the workplace? The MGH Institute of Health Professions physician assistant program’s TBL process of self and peer assessments has evolved organically since its inception in 2016. In this workshop using TBL principles and backward design, we will discuss the evolution of our self and peer assessment process which began as simply an anonymous survey process to ensure team accountability. Through student and faculty input, the process has been improved and includes themes like giving and receiving feedback, mediated face-to-face small group process sessions, and reflective writing. This process intentionally holds all members of the team accountable and also cultivates soft skills needed by our students in their professional settings. Small group discussions, a gallery walk of possible themes, and development of concrete learning objectives will provide participants with the opportunity to consider self and peer assessments as not just the most challenging component of TBL, but also as the component with the most potential for student development and growth.

#TBLC20 Featured Workshop Team-Based Learning for Training

With the 2020 TBLC Meeting just around the corner, we would like to bring attention to one of our featured workshops: A New Perspective on the TBL Learning Contract. This session will be presented by Peter Balan OAM from the University of South Australia and Michele Clark from the  University of Nevada – Las Vegas. We hope you enjoy this session!

Title: A New Perspective on the TBL Learning Contract 
Presented by: Peter Balan OAM – University of South Australia
Michele Clark – University of Nevada – Las Vegas
Date: Tuesday, March 17, 2020
Time: 8:00 AM – 9:45 AM

This workshop describes an innovative “grounded” approach to develop the student “learning contract” in the modern teaching and learning environment that requires students to take increased responsibility for the learning, and with an emphasis on students working in Team-Based Learning teams. In particular, this workshop demonstrates how the student learning contract can be formulated quickly in the context where there are three parties: the student, the team, and the educator. The workshop is based on a “bottom-up” method for developing the learning agreement using students’ own words by analyzing their perceptions of their own responsibilities, the responsibilities of their team members, and of the educator, in order for them to be successful in their studies. Importantly, the method demonstrated in this workshop allows educators to implement research projects that allow them to identify similarities and differences between perceptions based on student gender, their origin (local versus international students) and their academic performance. The findings of this type of research lead directly to an improved understanding of behaviors that can be immediately used for classroom management.

#TBLC20 Featured Workshop Team-Based Learning for Training

With the 2020 TBLC Meeting just around the corner, we would like to bring attention to one of our featured workshops: Team-Based Learning for Training (TBL-T): Lessons Learned in Continuing Education, Workforce Development and Corporate Education and Developing Best Practices. This session will be presented by Liz Winter from the University of Pittsburgh. We hope you enjoy this session!

Title: Team-Based Learning for Training (TBL-T): Lessons Learned in Continuing Education, Workforce Development and Corporate Education and Developing Best Practices
Presented by: Liz Winter – University of Pittsburgh
Date: Monday, March 16, 2020
Time: 1:15 PM – 3:00 PM

In 2017, several TBLC members discussed exploring a high-fidelity TBL model for diverse training settings. Many are involved in the translational work of using TBL-T including public and private organizations, in diverse areas including continuing medical education, corporate executive education, and public human services workforce development. The potential for the dissemination of TBL in these areas is hard to overstate, since so many occupations involve regular, ongoing training. Broader practice and accept

Frequently those who deliver curriculum are not those who develop it, so training both sets of people is essential and one size of training does not fit all. This workshop will use case studies as pre-work and participants will use TBL applications to collaborate on developing best practices to address the dimensions outlined above.
