The MINT team focuses on research in medical education and in particular pedagogical encounters, simulation, and digital tools to support learning.

Medical educational research is an interdisciplinary field which investigates learning on individual and system levels in both formal education as well as in health care. Pedagogical encounters are defined as situations where the learner and the teacher/facilitator/professional meet and interact for the purpose of learning.

The MINT team has an interest in analyzing interactions and practices related to learning in healthcare as well as designing technology to support these. Much of our research uses a design science methodology which can involve both qualitative and quantitative methods.
