- Illustrate how to transform a small group into a productive learning team.
Creating an Effective TBL Module*
- Explain the sequence of steps used for designing a TBL module.
- Describe characteristics of effective readiness assurance test questions and application exercise questions.
- Construct application exercises that adhere to the ‘4 S’ framework and engage teams in higher-level thinking.
- Use backward design to align application exercises with the readiness assurance test and module learning objectives.
Effective Mentoring for Educators
- Compare and contrast 3 definitions of mentoring in relation to process and outcomes.
- Choose an appropriate mentor or mentee.

Research Development Day
The 18th Annual TBLC Conference is just around the corner, and we would like you to get to know our keynote sessions! We have two presentations this year, a plenary session and a panel discussion, and we hope you enjoy each. The first will be given by Dr. Sheila Chauvin, Professor Emerita and Professor-Research at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center.
This 90‐minute session will engage participants in an interactive, hands‐on application of concepts and strategies related to leadership and change process and management. Participants will work through a scenario depicting an initiative to establish team‐based learning within a MD degree program. Both small and large group learning activities will be used. By the end of the plenary session, participants will enhance their abilities to facilitate successful change from introduction to adoption to implementation to institutionalization (long‐term, sustainable change).
