Plenary: Growing Through Team Based Learning: The Benefits Beyond Content Mastery for Learners and Facilitators
Date and Time:
 Sunday, March 3, 2024 at 5:00 PM CST
Presented by: Dr. Matthew Fete, PhD
College of Pharmacy, Chicago State University (USA)

Team-Based Learning (TBL) has been shown to be an effective pedagogy for motivating students to be prepared to engage material at an applied level; to attend classes and participate in their team’s success, and to enhance critical thinking skills.

However, the benefits beyond content delivery for TBL facilitators and content mastery for learners are substantial. Intentionality in the team formation process, student readiness assurance, team-based application of material to solve complex problems, and peer evaluation prepare everyone involved in a TBL course to grow beyond the material.

TBL prepares individuals to succeed outside of the classroom. This session will explore how individuals “Grow Through Team Based Learning” to be better prepared to solve real world problems in the communities they serve and as they grow as professionals.

We hope you enjoy what we are sure will be a very engaging plenary discussion. Register for the conference today!
