Get Real-Games for Learning

Tuesday, January 23 | 5:30PM–6:30PM | International Ballroom D
Session Type: Professional Development
Learning occurs by “thinking out loud,” as well as by presenting results. ELI will experiment with “Learning Circles” which are collaborative sessions in which a member discusses the “next big thing” they plan to pursue and seeks feedback from the participants. This group exploration also allows you to think about implications for your campus.

Framing question for this learning circle: What can we do to jump-start game-based learning on our campuses?

ELI and others have convinced us of the potential of learning through games. What can we do to jump-start this new type of learning on our campuses? The technology is expensive, and some faculty and administrators may think it a folly. How can we design programs that will effectively promote learning through games?
