Masterclass 2 – Team-Based Learning: Developing effective Facilitation Skills and Best Practices for using Peer Evaluation to optimise Active and Collaborative Learning

Dr Geeta Hitch, University of Sussex; Dr Shihab Khogali, University of Dundee; Professor Danny Mclaughlin, Newcastle University

Weimer (2002) describes how the effectiveness of using active, collaborative and enquiry-based approaches depends on the ability of academics to be able to ‘step aside and let students take the lead.’ This change often requires a shift in our thinking as academics from delivering ‘teacher-centred content’ to facilitating ‘student centred-learning. Peer evaluation is often used in collaborative learning to incentivise team-effort and reduce the risk of inequity in the individual contributions to group work.

This workshop focuses on sharing experiences and best practices for facilitating active and collaborative learning and the effective use of peer evaluation in to incentivise student engagement.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Apply best practice for facilitating active and collaborative learning classes
  • Develop and implement a peer evaluation tool to incentivise student engagement

This workshop will be delivered using a Team-Based Learning (TBL) approach
