Are you equipped for your Transform MedEd adventure?
Attending a conference is a journey of exploration – you will encounter interesting people and make new discoveries. The conference venue, the Royal Geographical Society, has been responsible some of the greatest expeditions in the history of humankind. It has inspired the conference game, Edventure. Why have a conference game? It’s a fun way to interact in new ways with fellow delegates, learn more about the conference venue, and get the most out of the conference programme. The game is designed to enhance your experience of the conference as well as showcasing how games can be used in education – one of the sub-themes of the conference. Participation is free and optional for all conference delegates.
You can participate before you arrive by exploring the Transform MedEd 2020 website to find hidden items of equipment that one might find useful on an expedition. There are currently four items to find. You will need to scrutinise text carefully, and ‘interact’ with images. Look out for the backpack icon and hint at the bottom of pages that contain items of equipment to find. When you have discovered an item, click on the backpack to record your find. Your discoveries will translate to Edventure points when you arrive at the conference.
At the conference, you will have a chance to embark on quests, complete missions and use your sleuthing skills to solve a mystery. Follow @Edventure10 on Twitter for game updates, including new ‘equipment drops’ on the website.
Pre-conference game: Medical Monopoly
Medical Monopoly is a game in which players visit museums, exhibitions and galleries around South Kensington to answer site-specific questions about medical exhibits. Teams accumulate virtual money through providing correct answers to questions, accomplishing creative challenges on Chance Cards (if you choose to risk it!), and engaging in Community Chest tasks.
You will need to be available to play between 12.30pm and 5pm on Thursday 12 March.
To play costs £14 per person which includes light refreshments before and after the game.
Players sign up as individuals and are allocated to a team. It’s a great way to meet conference delegates before the conference starts.
The venues all have wheelchair access and we’ll make reasonable adjustments to the game to accommodate any disabilities.
There are limited places available. Sign up when registering for the conference and we’ll send you further details in January 2020.
