Active collaborative learning

Untitled Page

We are committed improving students' engagement with learning and assessment through active learning approaches such as Team-Based Learning (TBL), inverted classrooms and flipped classrooms.

TBL is one of the active learning approaches being adopted at ARU to address our Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy’s aims. TBL is

 “a special form of small group learning using a specific sequence of individual work, group work, and immediate feedback to create a motivational framework in which students increasingly hold each other accountable for coming to class prepared and contributing to discussion"
(Michael Sweet (2010) quoted in Sibley and Ostafichuk, 2014, p 6).

Anglia Learning & Teaching (AL&T) together with Faculty TBL Leads support the development of team-based and active learning at our university through:
