Improving Facilitation Skills for a TBL Classroom
Date & Time
Sunday, March 15, 2020, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
One of the key components for successful implementation of TBL pedagogy is to ensure students' engagement and participation in team activities. TBL offers the tools and the infrastructure to hold students accountable in the learning and teaching process. In fact, the instructional shift from providing knowledge in traditional lectures to asking students to use critical thinking skills to locate, analyze, and/or apply knowledge, and to participate in team and class discussions, greatly relies on student engagement and commitment to learn. Therefore, effective facilitation is an integral component of successful delivery of a TBL module. Facilitation is a complex activity which requires the instructor to implement strategies that engage the audience and promote intrinsic motivation to participate. The purpose of this workshop is to share a diverse range of facilitation strategies which instructors can adapt and use to enhance their facilitation skills.
