The pedagogic potential of the pub quiz

Tom Bourner, Linda Heath

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article examines an innovative approach to the induction of students on an Education Doctorate programme by exploring the value of the pub quiz as a pedagogic device to support learning. The quiz took relatively little time out of a 2-day induction programme and had the dual benefits of providing a stimulating and entertaining way of presenting information as well as providing an opportunity for students to work collaboratively and cooperatively. Conclusions suggest that it could be used widely on induction programmes and more widely in Higher Education.
