In the premiere episode of the Teaching Commons podcast, we interview Judi Bradetich, Lecturer with the UNT Educational Psychology department, and Dr. Jessica Craig, Asisstant Professor with the UNT Department of Criminal Justice, about the collaborative learning method called Team-Based Learning. Ms. Bradetich is a certified Team-Based Learning (TBL) Consultant with the Team-Based Learning Collaborative. She is also a faculty fellow with CLEAR where she runs workshops on TBL. Dr. Craig joins us to share her perspective as an instructor who began using TBL in the classroom in the past year.
We define collaborative learning as learning that involves students working together toward a common goal, including group learning, team learning, etc.
