|AMSTERDAM, 2023年3月27日 - (亞太商訊) - FeedbackFruits has released
the new Team Based Learning, an LMS-integrated tool designed to
digitize and scale collaborative learning across all course sizes
Team Based Learning supports and enhances the facilitation of the
entire team-based learning (TBL) process, a collaborative learning
approach that gives students the possibility to apply their
knowledge to solve single or multiple problems.
The development of the tool was initiated in collaboration with
Deakin University and IE Business School, where TBL is one of the
prominent pedagogical approaches. Both institutions wanted to
develop an easy-to-use, LMS-integrated tool to accommodate
different elements of TBL. The initial version of the tool was
launched to help automate the individual Readiness Assurance Test
(iRAT) and team Readiness Assurance Test (tRAT). FeedbackFruits
then continued to work with Deakin University over the past year to
further expand the tool's capacity to cover all the major steps of
the TBL process.
The new Team Based Learning presents several functionalities that
support and optimize each stage of the TBL process. With the
ability to add engaging pre-work assignments, adjust activity
timing, decide on group representatives, and configure peer
evaluation steps, instructors can streamline a complete
collaborative activity in any modality. At the same time, students
enjoy a meaningful learning experience where collaboration,
autonomy, and accountability are maintained.
Dr. Svetlana Stevanovic emphasized the tool's capacity for
facilitating meaningful collaborative activities:
"I used FeedbackFruits for my first-year unit. The unit has a
team-based learning component where students are expected to
collaborate to reach a consensus on a specific topic/research
question. They are required to do some reading before the class.
The unit runs online and in person. I used Team Based Learning to
facilitate peer assessment and integrate the quiz into the studio.
The enrollment process worked well and enabled students to
participate in groups. Students were actively engaged and liked the
