Introduction: Teamwork is the ability of all team members in making an effective communication, predicting and meet their demands and making reassurance due to cooperative group activities. Based on this description, we need to know how we can prepare students for effective teamwork. Since some class work and most clinical practices are done through teamwork and this continues even after graduation, we decided to determine the outcomes of the application of TMTD method from students’ point of view. Method: This is a mix method study which done on postgraduate nursing student. Data gathering was done by a multiple choice questionnaire and open-ended questions. Then data were analyzed by qualitative and quantitative method. Findings: From 12 students participated in the study, only one student managed to get the complete grade, which was in the range of -10 to +30. Two students got 22 and the rest of the students got 26. Coding and categorizing open questions led to two main categories: positive effects and negative effects. Their perception of learning in a new method of teaching, pleasant class atmosphere, exiting teaching method, competition between teams, and lack of fatigue at the end of the class were the positive effects. The negative effects were too much effort for learning, distraction, and the newness of the method. Conclusion: In spite of being a new teaching method, the students eagerly tried to apply and learn from this method. In general, students got good grades in assessments. This could be due to the attraction of the new method, their level of education, or both those two and the efficacy of this method. It is suggested that teamwork training be planned in different courses, and its efficacy be assessed. Then gradually will be promoted in different curricula from primary schools to universities.
