This is a CE activity associated with the NN/LM MCR's Online Interactive Professional Development Experience OR Gaming in Adult Education Program used as another way to engage health sciences librarians. There are several activities within the game where players can learn about topics in the areas of technology, health information literacy, education, and library advocacy. The Three part Challenges are structured around the Experiential Education Theory (EET), also known as the See One; Do One, Teach One method of learning, which is used heavily in medical education. This theory views that each level of action increases the depth of knowledge of the learner. To make EET more relevant to how librarians learn, some modification was required: See One = “Increase Knowledge”; Do One = “Use Knowledge”; and Teach One = “Share Knowledge”. The general format for these challenge are where they will increase their knowledge by reading or watching a video on the game topic being covered followed by a quiz that will test their understanding of major concepts in the content. They will then carry out an activity or use that knowledge in a real and meaningful setting. The final challenge for the player is to share their experience with others to demonstrate the value of of the experience. The ultimate goal of the game is to produce librarians who are knowledgeable about important issues impacting health care, which in turn they can use to increase the knowledge of the wide range of stakeholders they work with everyday. This particular CE Challenge is in the area of Education and Health Information Literacy, that must complete in order: Challenge One = 10 Points (Education); Challenge Two 25 Points (Health Literacy); Challenge Three 65 Points (Health Literacy). The challenges focus on identifying ways players can become a potential solution or partner in enhancing access to quality consumer health information and to facilitate collaborations with libraries, public health workforce, and local/regional health agencies/organizations. To increase knowledge, the player will watch the TED video “Dave deBronkart: Meet e-Patient Dave” and correctly answer a question correctly to demonstrate they understood a major concept of the video. Players will the use their knowledge by creating a profile on the languages spoken in the county in which they are employed and create a list of health information resources that for those languages. They will then report on their experience of sharing their knowledge of raising awareness someone in their community who would find the resources helpful. Such as: 1) Meet with local public health staff to let them know you have these resources; 2) Meet with the local health ministry or parish nurse organizations; or 3) Present this information to library staff members.
