Evidence-Inspired Choices for Teachers: Team-Based Learning and Interactive Lecture
Jakobsen, Krisztina V.; Daniel, David B.
Teaching of Psychology, v46 n4 p284-289 Oct 2019
Research on team-based learning (TBL) generally supports its effectiveness over "traditional" lecture. In practice, however, lecturing rarely consists of teachers exclusively talking at their students, as many incorporate a variety of strategies to encourage active processing. This study compared an interactive lecture style with TBL on student performance. Generally, the results indicate that there are differences in particular aspects of course performance across conditions depending upon grade point average (GPA). Overall, these results support the findings that either teaching strategy is a viable option for teachers. We argue that there is no one right way to teach, and the scholarship of teaching and learning can best serve high-quality teaching by actively contrasting and evaluating a variety of techniques for the wide variety of teaching needs.
