“The FTBL programme has inspired me to improve the way I teach, as I used to be inclined to teach didactically. Now, I have learnt how to LEAD – to learn, engage, apply and develop teaching materials.”

– Dr Sadia Qazi, Lecturer Anatomy, College of Medicine, Alfaisal University Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (Participant from FTBL 2017)

“The FTBL programme has equipped me with an additional tool under my 'teaching/learning artillery'. It has inspired me to experiment with TBL and use it to engage learners in active learning. If you want to engage learners in active learning and to learn in teams, Team-Based Learning is definitely the way to go.”

– Dr Clement Yan, Senior Principal Physiotherapist, Sengkang Health (Participant from FTBL 2017)
