Team-Based Learning



Team-Based Learning is a powerful instructional methodology that transforms the focus for class time from the transmission of course content to helping students learn how to use course concepts to solve real-world problems. TBL was developed at the University of Oklahoma Business School in the late 70’s by Larry Michaelsen. We can help you implement it!

TBL has been used extensively at Applied Science in a wide range of courses – from Technology and Society courses to engineering science courses like Aerodynamics, Fracture Mechanics, and Construction Management. The Centre for Instructional Support is now one of the world leaders in the implementation of TBL in Engineering.To learn more about TBL and the implementations in Applied Science you can review:
