U of T Teaching Academy
Our large physiology courses, PSL300H, PSL301H and PSL201Y were three of ten U of T courses this past academic year to use Team Up! a web-based app that is designed to promote active learning. Team Up! allows students to sign in with their own electronic devices to form groups and to submit group answers to questions posed. The game-like nature of Team Up! is fun while promoting deeper discussions and peer teaching. Student marks are automatically uploaded to Quercus.

The app was developed by Melody Neumann, Cell and Systems Biology and further development of Team Up! to allow for use in Convocation Hall was supported by a LEAF grant to Melody Neuman, Franco Taverna, Human Biology and Michelle French.
