Join us in Tampa, Florida for the 18th Annual TBLC Conference, March 14-16, 2019!

The Team-Based Learning Collaborative (TBLC) invites educators to attend our 18th annual Conference on Team-Based Learning scheduled for March 14-16, 2019 at the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel in Tampa, Florida, USA.

The TBLC is a group of educators dedicated to supporting faculty that have implemented, or wish to implement, Team-Based Learning™. Previous conferences have drawn educators from a variety of institutions around the world that represent multiple disciplines, different contexts of teaching and learning, and a wide range of students, from secondary and professional schools to K-12 education.

Pre-Conference Workshops are scheduled for March 14, 2019. Pre-Conference workshop choices include Fundamental Principles and Practices of TBL, Creating an Effective Team-based Learning Module, Effective Mentoring for Educators, and a workshop focused on Furthering (Developing) Research related to TBL.

The conference itself will take place March 15-16, 2019, and will open with a plenary by Dr. Sheila Chauvin, Professor Emerita and Professor-Research (Gratis) at School of Medicine, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center - New Orleans. She will be presenting a session on "Leading Successful Change: An Application to Establishing TBL at your School." Dr. Chauvin's plenary is sure to be an exciting start to our conference!

The conference includes hands-on workshops, oral presentations, and poster sessions. Workshops are organized according to interest and experience levels, and include the Fundamentals, Innovation, and Research & Scholarship tracks. Participants are encouraged to sign up specifically for workshops in a designated track, or according to topics that interest them. While Fundamentals sessions will provide attendees with the basics of Team-Based Learning and how to do it, Innovation and Research & Scholarship sessions will challenge attendees to further develop their skills or to collect/analyze/publish their data on Team-Based Learning.

Finally, the conference location offers a variety of fun possibilities for your free time.

We hope to see you in Tampa, FL in March!
