Dr Sophia Tan | Snr Assistant Director, Centre for Teaching, Learning & Pedagogy, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
In this video, we chat with Dr Sophia Tan from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, about team-based learning (TBL) and its relationship to interdisciplinary learning and student feedback on teaching.
Sophia unpacks TBL as a form of collaborative, small-group learning that follows a very specific structure and seeks to overcome the passive learning approach of lectures to keep students active and engaged.
Pointing to TBL’s strength in advancing feedback - peer instruction and peer feedback in particular - to foreshadow the skills students will need in their professional lives, Sophia also emphasises the need for a system of feedback that doesn’t eclipse individual evaluation within the group setting and embeds feedback loops on teaching and learning efficacy.
How can educators use team-based learning in the most effective, scalable way to better engage learners and fulfil learning objectives? Watch the video for Sophia’s advice.
