FW: [ALT-MEMBERS] Team-Based Learning: Leading Educational Change 2015 Conference - 21/10/15


We are pleased to announce that the next UK Team-Based Learning Conference will take place on Wednesday 21st October 2015 and will be hosted by the Centre for Educational Development at the University of Bradford.


This year the conference will take the theme of Leading Educational Change and we are delighted that both Professor Shirley Alexander, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President (Education and Students) of the University of Technology, Sydney and Dr Michael Nelson, President Elect of the Team Based Learning Collaborative and Department Chair for Pharmaceutical Studies at Regis University, Colorado will be joining us to deliver the keynote and chair the presentation session respectively.


We are offering both a fundamentals track for those new to Team Based Learning (TBL) and one for people with some understanding or experience of TBL called Beyond the Basics - for further details check our provisional programme.


As TBL practitioners we are big fans of sharing experiences with and learning from our peers.  As such we actively encourage you to contribute as a presenter as well as a workshop participant.  Please submit your abstract for either a 15 minute oral presentation or a poster presentations by Friday 4th September.


Here is some of the feedback received from 2014 delegates:


•"It was absolutely superb! Going through and actually experiencing learning through first hand experience of the process of TBL, highlighted its pedagogical superiority to other forms of learning."


•82% of respondents said they intended to change their practice as a result of attending the masterclass


•"Extremely useful in helping me rethink how to redesign core teaching modules."


•89% of respondents rated the workshop as excellent


•"It provided a good insight and overview which was thought provoking - making you automatically enthused about how it could be utilised in your own place of work."


•100% of respondents said they would recommend the workshop to colleagues.


Tickets cost £90 early bird/£125 standard (from 1st September)
