Plenary: Determinants and Consequences of Engaging and Successful Team-Based Learning Activities for Adolescent and Adult Learners
Date and Time:
 March 13, 2023 at 8:15 AM ET

Team-based learning (TBL) has been increasingly implemented within higher education and in business sectors as a high-quality pedagogical tool over the last decade. In general, TBL is an approach that enables educators to provide opportunities to solve real-life job-related problems and collect authentic professional experiences. However, little is known about the psychological and educational determinants of an engaging and successful TBL and how these can be utilized to predict and achieve the desired outcomes of TBL. This course will provide an evidence-based theoretical framework to understand the main determinants of an engaging and successful TBL, age appropriateness, and feasibility of different strategies.
