If you want to make sure students are prepared for class and group work, come to this demo of Team Based Learning (TBL) and its Readiness Assurance Process (RAP) that includes the following:
- An individual quiz over assigned readings;
- A team quiz over the same material using immediate feedback "scratch off" cards;
- An open book "appeals" phase for incorrect "team answers" only.
- Corrective instruction (mini lecture) by the instructor based on a real-time understanding of what students didn't understand.
John Fritz and Jack Prostko will lead the first half of the demo, including a short TBL quiz of L. Dee Fink's "Integrated Course Design" summary paper from the IDEA Center at Kansas State University. Then, Anna Rubin (Music) will share lessons learned from her use of TBL in her Winter 2008 hybrid course, "Introduction to Music."
