The Academic Medicine Education Institute (AM•EI) is now offering a Fellowship in Team-Based Learning (FTBL).
The Fellowship in Team-Based Learning (FTBL) promotes a high degree of learners’ engagement, understanding and application of knowledge and skills using TBL. The program is developed and taught by leading faculty from the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore with a high level of TBL experience and expertise.
FTBL aims to provide educators with the necessary tools and skills to learn innovative TBL approaches and techniques at the beginning and intermediate levels to enhance their teaching. Educators will also learn to develop TBL modules and evaluate the success of TBL courses, modules and curricula. At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
- Appreciate the fundamentals of TBL
- Design and implement TBL modules
- Practice effective facilitation skills in TBL
- Learn and refine the development of multiple choice questions (MCQs)
- Design and implement an effective evaluation strategy

Who should apply
Medical educators, prospective faculty or professionals from any discipline who plan to incorporate TBL teaching methodology into their curriculum.
The fellowship consists of 3 developmental series. The first series provides the basic introduction and core skills for developing, implementing and evaluating TBL modules. The second series provides advanced workshops and mentoring in improving the modules, facilitation and evaluation. The third and final series offers further mentorship and shared experiences with other Fellows in the program. With each series, there will be structured reviews (called TBL Works in Progress - TWIPs) and debriefing sessions that are designed to engage the participants in discussions.
To obtain a certificate, the participants are expected to attend and meet the requirements of each workshop in every series. In addition, participants are expected submit module reports between series, complete an evaluation project related to their TBL module development and submit a poster for presentation, sharing outcomes and lessons learnt.
