From the 2023 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference
Presented by Krystina Angelini, MS, SM(ASCP)CM, and Jennifer McBride, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM
The rigor of the MLS curriculum challenges students to amass large amounts of knowledge and skills within a relatively short time frame, which can lead to student burn out/brain fatigue. This session describes the creation and implementation of active learning strategies in the form of common childhood games to reinforce curricular concepts and increase student engagement.
At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the benefits of active learning in the classroom.
- Apply game based learning strategies to common medical laboratory education units
- Identify additional opportunities for game based learning in MLS coursework
