Abstract

Team-based learning (TBL) is a pedagogical strategy similar to the flipped classroom model which promotes the benefits of small-group teaching in a large group setting, thereby enhancing students' engagement by increasing their accountability within peer group, and encouraging peer-to-peer learning. Although initially developed for a business school environment, TBL has recently been increasingly used within medical education. Reports on its implementation in engineering and science education are much scarcer. The aim of this work is to discuss the experience and impact of implementation of the TBL in a large group setting within year-one engineering module in Engineering Department at Lancaster.
