Team-based learning

Using teams enhances the quality of learning and increases engagement for all students.


Team-based learning is a collaborative strategy designed around modules of instruction taught in a three-step cycle: preparation, in-class readiness assurance testing, and an application-focused exercise. TurningPoint interactive polling software can be used to support the many principles underlying team-based learning.

“TurningPoint has been an invaluable tool in supporting the large-scale implementation of team-based learning (TBL) in our new pharmacy curriculum. The reports identify in real time any key concepts that our learners may be struggling with and allow us to rectify these during class.”

-Dr. Simon Tweddell, Senior Lecturer,
