Fun with Learning: Mixed-Methods Analysis of Students’ Attitudes Toward a Game Design Project

Thursday, June 09 | 1:45PM–2:30PM PT | Indigo CG, 2nd Floor
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session

This presentation is a mixed-methods case study to determine students' attitudes toward an innovative assessment using game design methodology (GDM) in an undergraduate economics course. GDM allowed students to take ownership of their learning and apply the concepts learned in class through the development of innovative and engaging games in groups. Student sentiment regarding the impact of the project on their engagement and learning of the economics concepts was very positive overall.
