Abstract

Following the transition from traditional lecture to team-based learning in a community health nursing course, several changes were implemented over a 2-year period in an effort to improve the student and faculty experience. This article describes the changes that occurred and reports data collected from the first cohort of students following initial implementation and from a second cohort of students 2 years later.
In an effort to increase student engagement, class participation, and overall student satisfaction, the instructor of a community health nursing course at a baccalaureate degree program began to explore more student-centered, active-learning strategies to use in the classroom. After observing and assisting with a course at another university that used team-based learning (TBL), the instructor decided to redesign a community health nursing course using this strategy. The course, which was previously taught using traditional lecture with intermittent use of active-learning strategies such as case studies and reflection activities, used TBL as the sole method of instruction beginning in spring 2010.
