The Collaborative

The Team-Based Learning Collaborative (TBLC) is a non-profit, volunteer supported organization which encourages the use of Team-Based Learning (TBL).  TBL is a process that dramatically shifts the focus of classroom time from conveying course concepts by the instructor to application of course concepts by student teams. The components of TBL are adaptable to many situations and special resources, making it a practical solution to teaching outside the box.

To be the global organizing body for advancing the utilization of Team-Based Learning (TBL) at all levels to enhance learning and scholarly teaching and training.

To provide the vision, organization, skills, training, and leadership to actively promote the understanding, use, transformation, and dissemination of TBL across global educational communities.
