The Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies (CTET) is pleased to announce another session in the Living Our Model series, a series highlighting various elements of the RRU Learning and Teaching Model and how faculty members are bringing it to life through their courses. This session, on Nov 23 from 1-3 p.m. in the Centre for Dialogue and online, will be focused on the Team-based Learning element of the model.

This session will provide a Liberating Structure format, “Shift and Share”, to highlight reflection and processes being used and developed to enhance team-based learning experiences in the classroom. This structure offers space to share ideas to maximize benefits and minimize barriers of team-based learning. It will appeal to anyone seeking to improve their team based processes and share their wisdom - from newbies to experts!

This session brings together three voices - faculty, CTET, and Team Coaching - to share a variety of tools/processes that can be used to enhance team based learning in your classroom.

During the session you will exchange ideas with:

  • Kathleen Manion of the School of Humanitarian Studies: integrating team based learning through enhanced design, integrating coaching support, and team based activities and assessments in the classroom
  • Sophia Palahicky, Manager with CTET: designing and developing relevant team-based learning activities, assignments, and assessment
  • Trish Dyck and Nooreen Shah-Preusser, Team Coaches: coaching teams to become efficient learning communities, dealing with team challenges, using technology to enhance team learning

Note: Past sessions of the Living Our Model series have focused on the Outcomes-Based and Technology-Enhanced elements of the LTM. Visit the Living Our Model resource on RRU’s Open Educational Resources (OER) site for more information.
