Teaching and Learning in Nursing Volume 5, Number 1 ISSN 1557-3087 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
As teachers, we strive to motivate and inspire our students to participate actively in the learning process. Gaming is an innovative teaching strategy that is an effective use of active learning pedagogy and should be considered by faculty for test preparation. According to K. Mangold (2007), the millennial generation expects learning to be fun and interactive, which gaming accomplishes. During the evaluation of the game “Jeopardy” as a test-preparation strategy, the author discovered that students perceive this method is an enjoyable tool to enhance the learning experience.
