16th Annual TBLC Conference


Join us in Orlando, Florida for the 16th Annual TBLC Conference, March 2-4, 2017!

The Team-Based Learning Collaborative (TBLC) invites educators to attend our 16th annual Conference on Team-Based Learning scheduled for March 2-4, 2017 at the Orlando Airport Marriott Lakeside in Orlando, Florida, USA.

The TBLC is a group of educators dedicated to supporting faculty that have implemented, or wish to implement, Team-Based Learning(tm). Our past Conferences have been attended by educators from many different disciplines and K-12 education, and from many different institutions around the world. As the 'word cloud' below illustrates, educators find TBLC Conferences educational, inspiring, and, quite often, just plain fun!


Pre-Conference Workshops are scheduled for March 2nd. Pre-Conference workshop choices include Team-based Learning 101, Creating a Team-based Learning Module, Becoming a Team-Based Learning Trainer-Consultant, and two new Pre-Conference workshops - Online TBL: Challenges, Solutions, and Future Directions and Becoming a Certified TBL Peer Reviewer.

The Conference, itself, will take place March 3-4, 2017, and will open with a plenary by Dr. Story Musgrave, professor of design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA and previously a NASA astronaut. Dr. Musgrave's plenary is sure to be an exciting start to our Conference.

The Conference will include hands-on workshops, data-based oral presentations, and poster sessions. Workshops will be organized around fundamentals, innovation, and scholarship tracks. While Fundamentals sessions will provide attendees with the basics of Team-Based Learning and how to do it, Innovation and Scholarship sessions will challenge attendees to further develop their skills or to collect/ analyze/ publish their data on Team-Based Learning.

Finally, the Conference location offers a variety of fun possibilities for your free time, including seeing Orlando's Antique Row, visiting the nearby Harry P. Leu Gardens, or stopping by Walt Disney World.

We hope to see you in Orlando, Florida, next spring!
