Team-based Learning (TBL) is a relatively new pedagogic approach to teaching that makes extensive use of intensive, interactive team activities in the classroom to deepen learning. To date, TBL has been deployed almost entirely in traditional on-campus classes. This paper outlines a strategy and preliminary framework to enhance team communication and strengthen group dynamics, leveraging online tools to support TBL techniques, empowering online students in active learning. It is vital to utilize technology effectively to structure the online classroom in a manner that best supports TBL’s deep learning experiences. The major contributions of this research will be to extend techniques from TBL approaches to the online groupsupport environment and to describe effective technological support.
