Team-based learning (TBL) is a pedagogical strategy that involves groups of students working together in teams to learn course material. The main learning objective in TBL is to provide students the opportunity to practice course concepts during class-time. A key feature is multiple-choice quizzes that students take individually and then re-take as a team. TBL was originally conceived by Larry Michaelsen for his business classes and has proven to be especially effective in training medical students. In this talk, we describe an adaption of TBL for an undergraduate introductory statistics course.
