Technological Alternatives to Paper-Based Components of Team-Based Learning
Robinson, Daniel H.; Walker, Joshua D.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n116 p79-85 Win 2008
The authors have been using components of team-based learning (TBL) in two undergraduate courses at the University of Texas for several years: an educational psychology survey course--Cognition, Human Learning and Motivation--and Introduction to Statistics. In this chapter, they describe how they used technology in classes of fifty to seventy students to improve the implementation of three key TBL activities: readiness assurance tests, reporting complex team assignments, and providing feedback on peer evaluations.
