Last December, the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Faculty of Arts ran an exciting workshop introducing Team Based Learning (TBL) to Macquarie University. Well, we’re back!

If you missed out on our last event, this is your chance to get up to speed with Team Based Learning – an active teaching and learning method that puts its own spin on the flipped classroom approach.

And if this is your second time back, we have a whole lot more in store! You’ll get to hear from guest academics who will share and reflect on their experiences with TBL, as well as learning new ways to facilitate TBL in your classroom.

We created this video for students to illustrate how TBL works:
