Creating Good TBL Questions and Using MedED Portal Resources

Presented by Jim Sibley, and Ed McKee, Ph.D. on October 14, 2010 at 12:00 pm

Come join us for this seminar that will introduce you to the design and development of effective TBL exercises.  We will highlight the use backwards design to connect your course objectives with effective TBL questions. Specifically, we will highlight strategies to develop questions using the 4 S’s TBL question framework.

We will also discuss the differences between Readiness Assurance Test  (RAT) questions and Application questions. We will discuss how to get started designing TBL questions and activities, perhaps with resources with which you are already familiar. We will provide an overview of the design of a specific MedEd Portal published TBL and other TBLs that are in the MedEd Portal collection.  Finally we will suggest where to get help with TBL implementation questions.
