Our Best Practice in Education Rounds (BPER) are accredited group learning activities as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. They are also accredited group learning activities as defined by the College of Family Physicians and Surgeons.
Rounds are open to all that are interested. Pre-registration is not required. Participants will be required to sign in at the event.
BPER is co-sponsored and organized by our Centre, and The Wilson Centre. Presentations originate from St. Michael's Hospital, are video-cast to various GTA locations, and are webcast.
We are pleased to now offer BPER live via Periscope. Periscope is an app that allows us to broadcast live and for anyone who has the app to view the presentation as it is happening or afterwards in the archive. You can download the Periscope app for free and it is very easy to use. There is also a chat function so that you can interact with others while watching the presentation.
Follow us live on Twitter @CentreforFacDev and ask questions during the session.
This presentation will intorduce gamification and immersive technologies (including virtual environments (VEs) such as video games, virtual simulations, virtual reality, and serious games), and discuss their potential application in medical education along with limitations, and potential problems educators may encounter.
