Edwards and Cosimini to Present “Card and Board Games for Health Professionals Education”

Implementing effective, advanced active learning instructional methods into the classroom can be a challenge for health professions educators. Game-based teaching is a promising and increasingly popular learner-centered teaching approach that stimulates engagement, motivation, and effective learning. The Winter 2023 IAMSE Webinar Series will survey the use and benefit of games in health care education and address strategies for incorporating games into the basic science curriculum. The fourth session in the series will feature Sarah Edwards from the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Trust (UK) and Michael Cosimini from the Oregon Health and Science University (USA).

This will include tips for development of games following our experience of developing and distributing serious card and board games. We will also discuss the Games And Medical Education Research(GAMER) collaborative community and ongoing projects.
