Team-Based Learning Collaborative
Asia Pacific Community Symposium

8-9 February 2024

Impact of Emerging technologies on learning strategies

COVID required educators to rapidly change the way they taught. Team-Based Learning (TBL) lent itself nicely to a virtual environment; however, educators are now wondering how new disruptive technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), ChatGPT might change, enhance, impact or disrupt the delivery of their learning activities such as TBL. This symposium will discuss the challenges and opportunities these emerging technologies pose for TBL and the general learning environment, and how these technologies are being integrated into higher education. The symposium also offers a valuable opportunity to connect, share ideas and engage with others in the regional TBL community. We warmly invite you to join us. For those unable to join in person, a virtual option will be available.
