Abstract : Nowadays medical errors are one of incidents and death causes involving nurses with poor clinical reasoning skills. Teachers in nursing schools need to improve these skills. Existing research works show the role of game-based learning to increase the students’ learning. Furthermore, many game design software exist, they are available and easy-to-use even by students without any technical knowledge. Game-based learning includes gameplay-based learning and game design- based learning. This paper studies existing game design-based learning approaches and identifies a methodology to co-design a learning game in the clinical reasoning field by nursing students themselves. This methodology is composed of 11 steps starting from the specification of pedagogical objectives until the game evaluation. This research work is dedicated to Technology Enhanced Learning community and more specifically to pedagogical engineers, game designers, researchers, and teachers in nursing schools who encounter difficulties in improving the clinical reasoning learning.
