Abstract


The paper presents an experimentation of technology-enhanced TBL carried out at the University of Foggia, a.y. 2023-24. This contribution outlines the educational implications of digital TBL and discusses how digital tools have been implemented in the learning environment. The design of instruction implied a partial rethinking of TBL methodology; this included the implementation of self-reflective questions, assessment rubrics and e-portfolio for formative and summative assessment. 


Keywords
