Challenges of Online Application Exercises

Publication Date



"As TBLC membership committee members, we have begun thinking about our approaches to TBL online and wanted to share them with you, with the focus here on application exercises. For many of us, the switch to creating Team-Based Learning (TBL) application exercises online has been necessarily quick and unplanned. Along with our own experiences, we have asked our colleagues for advice as we proceed with these new, exciting, and sometimes daunting experiments. Caroline Wilson, at Chapman University, is finishing up the semester of ½ in-person TBL and ½ online TBL, and she will first talk about her challenges and advice in Part 1. In Part 2, Caroline Rinaldi, from UT Southwestern, will discuss how her colleagues have adapted to some of the challenges online TBL with a large class size."
