Interprofessional team-based learning (IPTBL) is an innovative initiative to mix students from 12 different health and social care programmes in two universities (The University of Hong Kong and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University), in team-based learning activities to solve clinical problems. The aim is to create opportunities for them to learn with, about, and from each other, so that after their graduation, they can collaborate to provide the best possible care to patients.
An electronic platform has been developed in Learning Activity Management System (LAMS) to facilitate the team-based learning process in the face-to-face sessions, each of which can involve up to 600 students. In this seminar, Dr. Lap Ki Chan, the Principal Investigator of a UGC-funded project on IPTBL, will share how LAMS is used in IPTBL and whether Moodle can be used as an alternative
