The purposes of this research were to study the effect of a team-based learning (TBL) on student academic achievement and satisfaction learning in child and adolescent nursing subject I, Bachelor of Nursing Science Program. The sample were 110 second year nursing students at Saintlouis College in Academic Year 2015. There were three research instruments including Individual Readiness Assessment Test (I-RAT), Group Readiness Assessment Test (G-RAT), and application exercises. The KR-20 of I-RAT and G-RAT were .79 and the Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of the application exercises were .87. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and paired t-test.
The results are as followings; 1) the knowledge before and after using TBL of the second year nursing students was differently significant (p<0.001). 2) TBL effects on overall student satisfaction at medium level (mean = 3.50, SD=.50). The students reported satisfaction in the aspects of teamwork at high level (mean = 3.9, SD =.55), followed by the aspect of communication skills at high level (mean = 3.76, SD= .73), respectively.
The research shows that using TBL as a teaching and learning method in child and adolescent nursing subject I could promote student academic achievement and team work skills. TBL increases student engagement. It is one of the learning methods that can be applied to the other subjects for a big group of students.
