Ronald A. Styron, Jr., Jennifer L. Styron
This study includes findings from a university-wide
instructional improvement project conducted across multiple
disciplines in undergraduate and graduate courses. The
project was constructed around a common pedagogy,
Michaelsen’s Team-Based Learning . The purpose of the
project was to improve several outcomes based on the
constructs of critical thinking, collaboration, engagement and
persistence. Data indicated a positive impact on each of these
outcomes with a number of statistically significant findings.
