Is it Team-Based Learning or a Flipped Classroom?
(For several ISU faculty and their students, the answer is . . . "yes—both!")
Team-Based Learning (TBL) is an increasingly-popular form of flipped-classroom small-group learning that can be implemented effectively in small or large classes. TBL provides students with a small class feel even in large theater-style classrooms with fixed seats. TBL promotes high levels of student attendance, preparation, motivation, engagement, participation and critical thinking. Learn more about TBL at ISU.
