Webinar - The use of escape rooms in health professions education

Presenters: Lucy Bray, Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation (CAMES), Centre for HR and Education, Capital Region, Denmark; Panagiotis Antoniou, Lab of Medical Physics and Digital Innovation, School of Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, Aristotle University Thessaloniki, Greece

Date: Thursday 9 June 2022

Time: 10:00hrs-11:00hrs (UK time)

This webinar is the first of a two-part series focused on the use of escape rooms in health professions education. This initial webinar will provide an overview of what is meant by an escape room, how these can be used within health professions education and the evidence underpinning their use.

Introduction
Escape rooms are a team exercise, whereby participants discover and solve various puzzles within a fixed amount of time. Escape rooms are typically situated within one or multiple rooms, which are decorated in a specific theme, to offer an immersive experience. Both commercial and educational escape rooms exist. Educational escape rooms are increasingly being utilised within health professional’s education for both clinical and non-clinical learning objectives. Examples of non-clinical learning objectives include, but are not limited to, teamwork, problem-solving and leadership. 

Educational need or gaps to be addressed
Educational escape rooms are a relatively new teaching method within health professions education. Given their novelty, many remain unfamiliar with the method. However, educational escape rooms can be utilised for a range of clinical and non-clinical learning objectives, and thus, they offer a potentially valuable teaching approach. Therefore, a greater understanding of this method within the educational community is required, in addition to highlighting the remaining questions surrounding this topic, which demand further research.  

Aim/Learning Objectives
In this webinar, we aim to introduce the concept of educational escape rooms within health professions education and the evidence underpinning their use.

Format and Interactivity
Below is an overview of the key topics to be covered by the webinar, using a PowerPoint:

  • Introduction to webinar, presenters and project (10 minutes)

  • Explanation of the concept of educational escape rooms (15 minutes)

  • Overview of how educational escape rooms have been used (10 minutes)

  • Overview of the evidence underpinning their use (10 minutes)

If possible, an interactive poll will be run alongside the webinar to ask the audience questions regarding their previous experience with escape rooms, likelihood to implement the method in their teaching and potential learning objectives they could address using this method. 

The webinar will conclude with a 15-minute open discussion, whereby the audience will be encouraged to consider ways of implementing this method in their teaching or researching this method further, alongside the opportunity for the audience to ask the presenters further questions.

Anticipated Outcomes
By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  1. Define the concept of educational escape rooms

  2. Describe a teaching session using an educational escape room

  3. Identify ways in which educational escape rooms can be used in health professions education

Target Audience
As educational escape rooms are a versatile and adaptable teaching method, which can be implemented for both clinical and non-clinical learning objectives, this webinar will be relevant to educators of all health professions disciplines. Furthermore, as the concept is relatively new within health professions education and further research is required to enhance our understanding of this educational tool, this webinar will also be relevant to researchers within this field.

Webinar - Design, effectiveness and research related to serious games

Reflections on AMEE 2021 - join members of AMEE TEL Committee and share their experiences of designing and using serious games for skills training in the medical curriculum. Serious games are increasingly being used for education. They provide challenging, often motivating forms of learning. What design characteristics make them effective and motivating; and why? And what are critical factors for successful implementation? Finally, we’ll discuss how research on effectiveness of games can be performed and share results.

Presenters: Mary Dankbaar and Tjitske Faber, Erasmus University Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands

Date: Wednesday 22 June 2022

Time: 14:00hrs-15:00hrs (UK time) 

Introduction/Summary of theme as it was presented in 2021
This webinar will address the potential and the main characteristics of serious games and share the experiences of designing and using two serious games for skills training in our medical curriculum. We will share our considerations and experiences in the blended design and the implementation of these games. In addition, we will explain how we perform design-based research on serious games, using game-data and other measures to gain insight in the learning process and results. We will also share our results and lessons learned in this type of research. 

Educational Needs or Gaps to be Addressed
This webinar will address the questions related to designing, implementing and researching serious games for health profession education, sharing experiences based on the implementation of games in the medical curriculum. 
 
Aim/Learning Objectives:

  1. Gain insight into the potential benefits and challenges of serious games for education and (skills) training, and the design process.

  2. Become aware of challenges in the implementation of games and the critical success factors.

  3. Gain insight in how game-based research on learning processes and results can be set-up and what we know so far.

Format and Interactivity
The webinar will be interactive, using attendees input to deepen the information we provide and to have an active discussion. Attendees will be invited to share their experiences, develop their ideas on game design and research in their own context. We will use interactive questions, discussion and a breakout room session.

Anticipated Outcomes:

  • Attendees will have a better understanding of the benefits and challenges of games in education, and what is involved in the design process.

  • Attendees will be familiar with important steps to take when implementing a game in the medical curriculum.

  • Attendees will have knowledge on design-based research on serious games.
