FLC Topic: Game-Based Learning
Facilitators: Danny Otero (Mathematics and Computer Science) and Steve Yandell (English)
Start Date: January 2014
A well-designed course-based game, like good pedagogy, motivates students to engage with course material, provides opportunities for individually-paced mastery of skills and concepts, promotes collaboration and facilitates low-risk competition among students. Further, games can orient learning to real-world applications. In this FLC, members will explore principles of gaming through studying and playing games (!) and will experiment with ways to incorporate game-based learning into their courses through individual projects.
To apply to participate in this FLC, complete the application form and submit it by email to the CTE by Friday, December 6th. Applications will continue to be accepted if the FLC does not fill up at this deadline.
