Team-Based Inquiry (TBI) is an approach to empowering professionals to get the data they need, when they need it, in order to improve their products and practices and create successful educational experiences. This year, 20 individuals from 10 NISE Network partner institutions participated in a focused professional development cohort where they learned the TBI process and tried it out in their own institutions. How did it go, you ask? Did they actually get a team together, and did they actually study a project? They did! And three of those organizations are willing to talk about their experiences. Hear about these partners’ experiences with evaluation, how they handled any surprises or obstacles along the way, and how they are changing their work now that their first TBI project is done. This brown bag is the first in a series of online discussions to help partners better understand what TBI is and how it can be used in any institution and for any type of project or question. Hear a primer on TBI and how you might use it in your institution. Then, gather ideas on how TBI can be used to improve programs at your own institution and resources for learning more.
