Education Theory and Classroom Games: Increasing Knowledge and Fun in the Classroom
Games are a valuable teaching strategy in higher education classrooms. In the July 2005 issue of the Journal of Nursing Education, Glendon and Ulrich discussed the creative approach of games. Two games, What’s That Intervention? and Name That Drug, were described as “an excellent way to teach content, create community among students and faculty, and enhance students’ critical thinking abilities” (Glendon & Ulrich, 2005, p. 338). This article describes another game, Who Wants To Be A Nurse?, that also meets the needs of adult learners by actively involving them in the learning process in a fun and exciting way
