Games And Gamification Reading Group And Learning Community

Wednesday, June 3, 2020
1:00pm – 2:00pm


What are reading groups and learning communities? This is a time to dive into an aspect of teaching that you’re interested in learning more about or approaching in a new way. An article (or sometimes a book) is shared and read in advance, and forms the basis of a discussion with colleagues in teaching from across the university. When scheduled as a multi-session series, these meetings take on the feeling of learning communities and even communities of practice.

The thematic focus for this particular session is the role of games and play in course design.

Proposed Objectives • Seminar-style, to discuss a reading with diverse colleagues on the meaning of play and the use of games. • To identify your own reasons for gamifying or adding play • Share what is on your mind
