About the collection

With a new generation of professional learners, we require novel methods of interactive learning, based in adult learning theory. Educational gamification is a growing field within both undergraduate and graduate medical education settings to motivate learners and provide an interactive, experiential, and social learning environment. Through this collection, we seek to share experiences from around the world to develop best practices in educational gamification within emergency medicine.
