As an instructor in the business environment, there’s a pretty good possibility you came to the role without what many of us think of as a traditional education background.
The collaborative nature of team-based learning might seem foreign to many instructors who are firmly rooted in the old study/lecture/test classroom model.
As discussed earlier, these foreign aspects emerge from several factors, perhaps the most significant being the collaborative nature of the team-based learning environment.
As many in academics have come to realize, the old stand-by method of assigning reading, lecturing on material and then testing students is inefficient and, under many circumstances, ineffective.
When it comes to training, many managers and instructors remain couched in the old-school model of lecturing inside the classroom or seminar, leaving it to trainees to absorb and apply that knowledge outside the learning environment.
