Hybrid Team-Based Learning Course: Redesigning an Undergraduate Social Psychology Class


In summer 2014, I flipped my Social Psychology class using Team-Based Learning model (TBL) as a guide in order to encourage students to read before the class and interact more with other students in class. TBL is a unique collaborative learning method in which students become active rather than passive learners, while a teacher becomes a guide rather than a performer on stage (Sweet and Michaelsen 2012). In this course redesign project, I transform the flipped Social Psychology class into a hybrid one, posting the lectures and videos online, while spending even more in-class time for team and class discussion. By adopting a hybrid structure, this class offers the benefits of both the traditional face-to-face class and online class.
