TeamUSA Quality Enhancement Plan
Team-Based Learning (TBL) is an engaging educational approach that includes a specific
sequence of individual work, group work, and immediate feedback to create a learning
environment in which students are accountable for coming to class prepared and contributing
to discussion. As the focus of our Quality Enhancement Plan, TBL is implemented in
courses with the aims of improving student learning outcomes, achieving higher levels
of critical thinking and problem-solving skills, enhancing collaboration and communication,
and applying course content to real-world situations.

Rather than memorizing material for a test, they are working together to apply course content to realistic situations and to solve complex problems.
