Team Based Learning in a Mechanical Engineering undergraduate programme Victor Geh Steve Cayzer Goals of this talk If you are new to Team Based Learning (TBL) To motivate you to talk to me, find out more and maybe give it a try If you are a TBL expert To motivate you to provide help and guidance particularly on peer evaluation
Anyone else To motivate you to engage - all comments welcome! Picture of Tutorial showing - lack of peer engagement - patchy attendance Te a m - b a s e d L e a r n i n g ( T B L ) TBL is a teaching strategy that brings the benefits of small group teaching into a large group setting.
Students are given the responsibility for their own learning and are held accountable to their team. Lecture(s) Pre-reading iii. Team Application Activities
ii. Readiness Assurance Process (RAP) i. Pre-class preparation Students take a
Readiness Assurance Test (RAT) to establish basic concepts First attempt test individually (iRAT) Attempts same test as a team (tRAT) Teams use newly learnt concepts to solve increasingly

Peer learning at a large scale The quiz in TBL 1 was really useful. 10 9 8 Things learned are more memorable than standard tutorials.

Peer learning at a large scale 9; 12.33% Encouraged learning together; useful to hear how other people worked through a problem; I find it easier to ask for help from friends than lecturers and helpers, so this session meant I could learn more. 9, 12% 31; 42.47% 31, 43%
16; 21.92% 16, 22% 17, 23% 17; 23.29% What did not go so well? Flowchart in TBL 2 and TBL 3
Groups did not develop into high-performing learning teams Need to be more general so that what we do is more applicable than just to attempt one specific question. Variation needed. Not time efficient enough to keep up with how many questions we should have done by this point (7 weeks) TBL 1 (RAT)
TBL 2 (App) TBL 3 (App) TBL 4 (RAT) TBL 5 (App) Self Assessment Four Essential Elements of TBL
1. Strategically formed permanent teams with a wide range of skillset 2. The Readiness Assurance Process (e.g. Pre-reading, iRAT, tRAT, feedback) 4. Holding students accountable to their work and providing frequent feedback 3. Effective group assignments that develop students critical thinking skills Conclusion
The Easy part iRAT/tRAT worked! Scaling up of learning The Hard Part Designing Application Activities
Building High Performing Teams (peer evaluation) TBL does not play well with traditional tutorial schedule/mindset
