Will Ofstad Appointed to Committee Chair of Team-Based Learning Collaborative

 

Congratulations to Will Ofstad, PharmD, BCPS, CDE, Assistant Dean for Education and Associate Professor of Clinical Sciences, who was appointed as the new chair of the Educational Development Committee for the Team-Based Learning Collaborative organization.

Team-Based Learning Collaborative (TBLC) is a non-profit organization which encourages the use and promotes the understanding of Team-Based Learning (TBL). TBL is a teaching method that shifts the focus to students collaboratively working together in teams to analyze and evaluate information, rather than an instructor conveying a lecture. CHSU’s curriculum is delivered through the same teaching method and has shown to result in deeper learning, with longer retention and a greater potential to apply what has been learned under different circumstances.

Dr. Ofstad’s expertise is exemplified by his delivery of over 1,000 hours of TBL classroom teaching and assessment, invited notational and international educational workshops and publications, and service as a national trainer and mentor in the TBLC Trainer Consultant program. He has served as past Director of a regional Center for TBL, Chair of the Curriculum Committee, and as President of the Northern California College of Clinical Pharmacy.

Dr. Ofstad says, “I am excited to lead the transformation of education through team-based learning.  The EDC will serve the educational needs of faculty colleagues from around the world.”
