Team-based learning (TBL™) is an active learning and teaching strategy where students have an active role in their learning. It is a method where the instructor facilitates learning, not lecture from the front of the room. TBL™ is also a very structured teaching strategy based on cognitive learning theory. Team formation, readiness assurance process, application activities and peer evaluation are the four pillars of TBL™. TBL™ has become popular and is a preferred teaching method in nursing education in many institutions. The aim of this article is to introduce the process of TBL™ and discuss its use in nursing.
