Learning and Teaching Network session on gamified seminar

Colleagues are invited to attend the Learning and Teaching Network session taking place on Friday 8 March, from 13:15-14:30 in Rochester Boardroom R2-09 on the Medway campus.

Karthikeyan Muthumayandi, from the School of Sport & Exercise Sciences, will present this session on ‘Learning clinical special tests through gamified seminar’.

The primary objective of this feasibility research is to compare the delivery of gamified seminar to that of the traditional methods in teaching clinical skills. We used free web-2 technologies in developing a gamified seminar in the virtual network.

Eleven therapy students underwent learning through traditional seminar and gamified seminar in a random order. A semi-structured interview, pre and post student satisfaction level, knowledge and understanding scores were measured. Gamified seminar had better scores than traditional seminars in most variables but similar scores on the knowledge and understanding. Gamified seminar can be an adjunct to different seminar delivery methods.
