What Is A Team-Based Learning Facilitator?

Team-Based Learning Facilitators are education professionals who help teams develop skills to allow them to work most effectively together.

Cohort-specific workshops to engage more deeply in skills that allow teams to work better together and will help students engage with colleagues and clients in practice, such as giving and receiving feedback, professionalism and delegation.

TBL Team Meetings

Regular check-ins with each TBL team to assess progress, have open discussions for feedback and reflection, and allow goals to be set and changes to be made so teams continue learning together in a safe and productive environment.

Advocacy and Support
