Using learning design and LAMS to implement team-based learning

AN EXAMPLE FROM MEDICAL EDUCATION

4 October 2017

A Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation seminar.

Learning design provides frameworks for describing and sharing effective teaching strategies. The Learning Activity Management System (LAMS) is an open-source system for creating, sharing and implementing teaching strategies, including problem-based learning, role plays and other sequences of collaborative online learning activities. Team-based learning (TBL) is a teaching strategy that uses a combination of individual and small-group assessment tasks combined with group debate about chosen answers, and whole-class discussion. While TBL has been conducted using paper for several decades, LAMS is the first learning-design system to provide a flexible online toolset for implementing TBL. LAMS-enabled TBL has been a core element of the new medical program at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. This presentation will discuss the pedagogical and technical challenges of adapting LAMS to implement TBL, and lessons learned from implementation with students.
