Interested in learning how to deliver a new innovative technology enabled Team-Based Learning (TBL) approach to enhance group work in Business schools? TBL is a student-centred “flipped” learning and teaching strategy, which would usually include a classroom-based exercise to consolidate student knowledge.

Our colleagues at Adam Smith Business School have successfully adapted this model for a blended or online approach and are using this to deliver workshops to international business students. We hope you can join the colleagues on June 17 at 11:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada) sharing their insights on this topic in a joint AIB T&E SIG and Georgia State University CIBER’s webinar.

Webinar is free of charge.

Key takeaways of the webinar:

  • Learn about TBL – a pedagogically robust model of group work that encourages student engagement and accountability to their peers.
  • Obtain useful insights into how TBL works on an International Business programme to support students to develop an appreciation of diversity in global teams.
  • Find out about YACRS: a web-based class response system that students can access by using their own mobile devices, designed at the University of Glasgow in collaboration with academics in the Business School and Computing Science.
