AbstractThis study investigates student perceptions of team-based learning (TBL) in a collaborative learning space using a qualitative, single case study of an undergraduate, entrepreneurial leadership course taught in the spring 2018 using a flipped delivery model. There were 11 participants that were interviewed three times throughout a 16-week semester: once at the beginning of the semester, once mid-semester, and a final time at the end of the semester. The participants were also observed throughout the entirety of the entrepreneurial leadership course. The findings revealed that (i) the primary focus of the students was on the team experience, (ii) students in a leadership role wanted additional support as the semester progresses, (iii) the collaborative design of the classroom space was not fully utilized by the students, and (iv) there was a positive perception of TBL. Recommendations for practice and research are provided.
