The innovation presented is a cooperative game designed to teach content and promote intraprofessional and interprofessional collaboration and teamwork. The game is unique in that it is simple to adapt to any teaching plan, simple to play with any number of players, consists of common and inexpensive materials, and provides content rather than reviews it. This presentation will share how course objectives can be met by utilizing cooperative gaming. During the presentation, the process of how to adapt the game to any content and a demonstration of how to play it will be included. This presentation will share the implementation and outcomes of a cooperative gaming experience in the classroom and simulation setting. Student and faculty responses to the game will also be shared. The evidence shows that individual learning does not have the added benefit of promoting collaboration and critical thinking. However, cooperative gaming has been used less frequently than many other strategies. Cooperative gaming has shown to be effective in promoting intra- and inter-professional collaborative practice to teach critical reasoning. This type of learning is well-suited for learning content within the health sciences as it simulates the type of work graduates will be doing.
