Lesson planning and delivery is still frequently seen as a solitary occupation, but healthcare educators are increasingly working in interprofessional teams to produce learning opportunities for their students and trainees (1). There are many practical and educational advantages to interactive co-teaching including: team development, knowledge and content integration, role modelling of professional behaviours, and a more active and engaging format for learners. At the same time, the concept of ‘playful learning’ is emerging as educators increasingly recognise the value of offering learners ‘safe’ spaces in which to experiment, work collaboratively and creatively and, crucially, to learn from failure and to manage risk-taking (2). We present an educational game, “CARDIPH” - the Card Game for Interprofessional Healthcare. The purpose of the game is to encourage participants to collaborate in teams to plan and design an innovative and interactive teaching and learning intervention. Thanks to its element of chance, resource constraints and risk, “CARDIPH” accurately reproduces the challenges of ‘real world’ educational design and delivery. Participants will be introduced to the game and its learning and teaching principles. They will also be invited to play “CARDIPH” during the workshop and then to reflect and feedback on the potential of playful learning and collaborative educational practice within their own education settings.
