Get Real-Games for Learning
Tuesday, January 23 | 5:30PM–6:30PM | International Ballroom D
Session Type: Professional Development
Learning occurs by Ã‚â€œthinking out loud,Ã‚â€ as well as by presenting results. ELI will experiment with Ã‚â€œLearning CirclesÃ‚â€ which are collaborative sessions in which a member discusses the Ã‚â€œnext big thingÃ‚â€ 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?
