Sean Robinson is an Assistant Professor for the GWU Physician's Assistant Studies Program. He recently completed his Doctorate in Health Science with a focus on active learning strategies in healthcare education and has been using team-based learning (TBL) for several years in PA education. Team-based learning (TBL) is a relatively new pedagogical method used primarily in higher education, though not unknown to elementary and high school educators. With roots in schools of business and law, TBL is a means to help students become self-reliant in knowledge acquisition and better "critical thinkers". TBL has an added benefit of strengthening interpersonal and team-building skills which are paramount in today's complex healthcare environment.
