team-based learning; credit course; information literacy course
The author implemented team-based learning (TBL) in a credit-bearing information literacy course that meets a general education requirement at the University at Albany. TBL is a highly structured teaching method that includes a number of components not found in more traditional use of teams in the classroom. It required substantive changes in the course, which were notably repaid by the impact on student preparedness and engagement. The main elements of team-based learning are explained in the setting of this course.
