Putting Structure to Flipped Classrooms Using Team-Based Learning

Current educational practices and cognitive-developmental theories emphasize the importance of active participation in the learning environment, and they suggest that the first, and arguably most important, step to creating a better learning environment is to make learning an active and reciprocal process. Flipped classrooms, in which students learn the primary course content outside of class, have gained recent popularity. Many institutions, especially medical and business schools, have established flipped classrooms and recorded the method's effectiveness. One key component to the flipped classroom is the absence of traditional lectures inside the classroom. Unfortunately, how to effectively structure the classroom experience in light of this absence is largely missing in the literature and creates a unique challenge for instructors who are unsure of how to spend class time. In this paper, we present Team-Based Learning (TBL) as one way to effectively structure a flipped classroom environment.
