Team-Based learning can be described as a structure form of small group learning that emphasizes student preparation out of class and application of the knowledge in class. Before each course module students are supposed to do prior readings assigned by the instructor. Assoc. Prof. Chulathida who teaches biomedical oriented courses, uses TBL approach in her Ethics in Biological Science course at MUIC. Students learn to identify basic ethical issues in everyday life that deal with medical health and life science in the first hour of the class and also to use the basic principles of ethics and ethical reasoning to interpret the dilemma proposed in the cases. This approach helps to display a greater and holistic awareness of the fact that people from very different background, beliefs, and assumptions interpret the dilemma differently and enables higher level of engagement among students. Aj. Chulathida introduced some of these cases to the participants in workshop who as a team also assessed these cases.
