Our Keynote speaker for the 32nd Showcase is Dr. L. Dee Fink, of Dee Fink & Associates, Norman, Oklahoma.

If we want our teaching to have a major impact on student learning, what are some ideas that can help us do that?  Since 1990, thescholars of teaching and learning have been generating new ideas – every year, every year – about college-level teaching.  All of these ideas are good, but which ones have the most potential to have a high impact on student engagement and student learning?  In this presentation, I offer my list of 5 high impact teaching practices.  Implementing any one of these can improve almost anyone’s teaching; implementing two or three of them will provide an amazing experience – an experience that is as exciting for the professor as it will be for the students.

Dr. Dee Fink Special Showcase Workshop

TEAM-BASED LEARNING: A Special Way of Using Small Groups

Room: PSU 400
Time: 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Many college teachers are now using small groups in their courses.  While this generally makes a course more active, students and even teachers also frequently feel that these efforts do not result in experiences that students value.  In fact, some students say they “hate small group work.”  This happens when teachers don’t manage the dynamics of group work properly.

In this workshop, Dr. Fink will introduce team-based learning (TBL) as a special way of using small groups.  TBL uses a specific sequence of activities that (a) accelerates the transformation of “groups” into “teams” and then (b) directs the dynamic energy of teams in a way that results in high levels of student engagement and high quality student learning.

During this workshop, participants will not only learn about team-based learning, they will experience it.
