Pinar Falcioglu,Selen Sabah
Team-based learning is an active learning strategy that aims to develop team work and critical thinking skills. The aim of this study is to analyze the perceptions of business administration students of a private university located in İstanbul who have been actively involved in an active team based learning course. With this aim; university students have been asked about their perceptions about team-based learning both in the beginning and at the end of the semester. Students have answered questions based on how they feel about having small team environment and student taught lectures. They were asked whether they have the abilities to evaulate text , develop a lecture, make a presentation , apply theory to a specific case and present a topic to the class. The results indicate that perceptions of students change about team work, they also develop skills required to work in small teams. The results of the study provide us information on how to develop new skills and methods to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of small-team members both for educational institutions and work organizations.Keywords : Team based learning, active learning, business administration, skill development, teamwork.JEL Classification : I21, M53, M54
