Team Learning

Using small groups to improve the quality of learning in Higher Education

Larry Michaelsen, University of Oklahoma, teaches classes with 200+ students, but only lectures about 20% of the time. He accomplishes this with a system called Team Learning, which he has been developing for over 28 years.

Check out Creating Successful Group Assignments for general guidelines and concrete advice on how to design high-quality, application-oriented group assignments.

Several teachers at the University of Oregon are already using Team Learning. To learn more about the advantages offered by Team Learning, contact TEP.
