IAMSE Winter Webinar Series: Not Just Fun and Games

January 5 @ 8:00 am - February 2 @ 5:00 pm

This webinar series is only available for UW affiliated faculty, staff, and students. 

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 series will provide an overview of existing literature, including the theories underlying the use of games in medical education, and empirical findings from recent research studies, including a peek into the future of game-based learning. Invited speakers will provide practical strategies to incorporate well-known game formats into instructional sessions such as TV quiz shows, medical escape rooms, virtual reality technologies, and “serious games,” with a special emphasis on immediate feedback and formative assessment.
