Team Based Learning (TBL) offers the potential to transform group work into something that: builds high performing teams; creates meaningful learning partnerships between students; and holds students accountable to their peers. The promise of TBL is that flipped teaching will work and peer learning will become a reality not just an aspiration. TBL offers a scaleable way to increase engagement while delivering higher level learning outcomes – a triple win. Is TBL too good to be true?
Join Steve Cayzer, Department of Mechanical Engineering, for this CLT lunchtime hub where you will answer this question by experiencing TBL for yourself.
Pre reading will be provided and you will be assigned to diverse teams. You will then experience the student journey through a typical TBL session, including an individual test, and team test. If time permits there will be a short application activity during which you will assess to what extent TBL could be applied to your teaching.
The author was introduced to TBL in 2017 and it has since transformed his teaching in cohorts of 80-100 students. Along the way, many lessons have been learnt about what works best in our University context.
This session is suitable for those with no experience of TBL, but it is designed to be of value to those who have experienced TBL or related approaches like problem based learning or flipping.
Intended Learning Outcomes
• Define Team Based Learning (TBL)
• Describe some empirical evidence for the efficacy of TBL.
• Assess the suitability of TBL for your own context.
Question and Answers to follow the talk.
A light lunch will be available from 12:15pm
This is a fully-funded, hands-on workshop introducing time series analysis for researchers, that is, the study of data that has ‘time order’. Lead by Dr Manuel Herrera from the University of Cambridge, this workshop will introduce the topic while demonstrating fundamental techniques that powers rigorous analyses for both quantitative and qualitative datasets in an accessible way, so that you can become familiar with the core concepts and key terminology.
Please note that this event is for PhD students currently enrolled in GW4 partner universities (Cardiff University, University of Bath, University of Bristol, and University of Exeter).

In this workshop, I will be exploring the physiology of stress and the mind body feedback loop. I will share simple ways in which we can use our physical body to interrupt the stress cycle and make real change to both our physical and mental health. So if you are interested in exploring how you can use your physiology to improve your psychology, this workshop is for you."

The Western Counties Tuesday Group invites you to a free presentation.
Accurately surveying large and potentially unsafe buildings can be a challenge but is essential to assess stability and condition. Point cloud surveys offer a safe, fast, and detailed means of surveying buildings but how do you specify them and how do you use the data captured? In this talk, Chris will present several projects where point clouds have been used to survey and assess historic masonry buildings ranging from manor houses to ruined abbeys to demonstrate both the capabilities and limitations of the method.
