#TBLC21 Featured Workshop: Self and Peer Assessment: More Than Just Accountability?

With the 2021 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 Mike Boutin and Dominique Murphy. 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 Mike Boutin and Dominique Murphy – MGH Institute of Health Professions
Date & Time: Friday, March 5, 2021, 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM ET

ave 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 developed 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 backwards design, we will discuss the evolution of our self and peer assessment process from an anonymous survey that only held teammates accountable, to a process that includes a workshop on a particular theme like giving and receiving feedback, followed by a face-to-face small group process session that intentionally holds all members of the team accountable but also cultivates soft skills needed by our students in their professional settings. Small group break out rooms and a virtual gallery walk of possible themes and 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.

We hope you enjoy this and our other exciting workshops.

#TBLC21 Featured Workshop: Putting the Faculty in the Student’s Seat

With the 2021 TBLC Meeting just around the corner, we would like to bring attention to one of our featured workshops: Putting the Faculty in the Student’s Seat: A TBL Immersive Approach to Faculty Development. This session will be presented by David Fuentes, Jeremy Hughes and Will Ofstad. 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: David Fuentes – University of Portland
Jeremy Hughes – Chicago State University College of Pharmacy
Will Ofstad – West Coast University
Date & Time: Wednesday, March 3, 2021, 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM ET

Faculty can imagine the implications that TBL has on learners’ study strategies, time management, and overall student life, however, few faculty have experienced TBL from the seat of the learner. By modifying the traditional faculty and staff development model to one utilizing TBL methodologies, there is an opportunity to “kill multiple birds with one stone”. Faculty and staff can experience TBL as a learner, observe TBL facilitation, and gain knowledge to help them better complete various aspects of their jobs. The purpose of this workshop is to empower attendees to expand their approach to faculty and staff development within their departments and across their institutions to one that utilizes TBL methodology. Readiness materials will include articles and videos discussing faculty development techniques based on androgological theories. Strategies for improving faculty participation and engagement in their own professional development will be identified through collaborative discussions and case-based learning. Workshop attendees will work in teams to create a sample faculty development curriculum, identifying core topics, activities, and schedules, for a simulated department/college within a larger institution.

We hope you enjoy this and our other exciting workshops.

#TBLC21 Featured Workshop: Jazz and TBL: A Workshop in Improvisation Skills for Facilitating Great Sessions

With the 2021 TBLC Meeting just around the corner, we would like to bring attention to one of our featured workshops: Jazz and TBL: A Workshop in Improvisation Skills for Facilitating Great Sessions. This session will be presented by Christopher Burns and Richard Plunkett. We hope you enjoy this session!

Title: Jazz and TBL: A Workshop in Improvisation Skills for Facilitating Great Sessions
Presented by: Christopher Burns – California Health Sciences University, College of Osteopathic Medicine
Richard Plunkett – University of British Columbia
Date & Time: Friday, March 5, 2021, 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM ET

The act of teaching is an improvisational activity. This holds true regardless of pedagogy. TBL facilitators encounter uncertainty, complexity, and change in their daily teaching activities. Like jazz musicians, they need to improvise, managing a tension between the structure imposed by the learning objectives and the freedom necessary to meet learners where they are. This workshop will draw upon traditions of jazz education to help facilitators explore their voice, an important developmental task in improvisation. Voice incorporates facilitation skills into one’s own style, conveying authenticity and fueling synergy and harmony in human relationships. Teachers who have developed an authentic voice are more likely to create memorable experiences in the classroom, and to reach learners and help them navigate the difficulties of learning new material. These skills will benefit instructors teaching in any discipline, at any level, and with diverse student groups.

We hope you enjoy this and our other exciting workshops.

#TBLC21 Featured Workshop: Designing Course Policy Statements

With the 2021 TBLC Meeting just around the corner, we would like to bring attention to one of our featured workshops: Designing Course Policy Statements That Optimize Beliefs and Maximize Motivation in the TBL Classroom. This session will be presented by Karla Kubitz. We hope you enjoy this session!

Title: Designing Course Policy Statements That Optimize Beliefs and Maximize Motivation in the TBL Classroom
Presented by: Karla Kubitz – Towson University
Date & Time: Friday, March 5, 2021, 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM ET

Given the potentially beneficial impact on intention and behavior in the classroom, TBL course policy statements should ideally support the development of optimal behavioral beliefs, normative beliefs, and control beliefs for all of our diverse learners. The Designing Course Policy Statements workshop will be conducted using a TBL format. Attendees will be provided with a pre-workshop reading assignment related to the theory of planned behavior and the workshop will begin with an individual and a team Readiness Assurance Test. The workshop will continue with several Application Activities. Application Activities will challenge teams to: (a) classify exemplar TBL course policy statements according to whether they focus on behavioral beliefs, normative beliefs, or control beliefs; and (b) to decide whether exemplar TBL course policy statements are likely to optimize behavioral beliefs, normative beliefs, and control beliefs. Upon completion of the Workshop, attendees should be able to transfer what they learned and evaluate/ redesign their own course policy statements.

We hope you enjoy this and our other exciting workshops.

#TBLC21 Featured Workshop: Developing Leadership Competency For Communicating Across Cultures

With the 2021 TBLC Meeting just around the corner, we would like to bring attention to one of our featured workshops: Team-Based Learning to Develop Leadership Competency for Communicating Across Cultures and Working in Multicultural Teams. This session will be presented by Judith Ainsworth and Annelise Ly. We hope you enjoy this session!

Title: Team-Based Learning to Develop Leadership Competency for Communicating Across Cultures and Working in Multicultural Teams
Presented by: Judith Ainsworth – McGill University and Annelise Ly – Norwegian School of Economics
Date & Time: Wednesday, March 3, 2021, 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM

Future global leaders need to develop global leadership competencies (GLC) to tackle the complexities of globalization, not just to learn about them. To meet this challenge, this workshop aims to develop GLC using a Team-Based Learning (TBL) cross-cultural negotiation activity to help future global leaders successfully collaborate with, motivate and lead people in international settings and from different cultures. This workshop aims to help participants practice (1) their ability to understand and describe their own views of the world, how they relate to others and to question the way they act; and (2) their ability to communicate effectively and work in multicultural teams, an essential competency for global leaders.

We hope you enjoy this and our other exciting workshops.

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.
