‘Serious Play’: How Games and Simulations Enhance Academic Learning
This session will examine how games, simulations and other gameful experiences can be used to assess, motivate, deepen and enhance student learning. We will examine the value of play in digital, desktop and physical games and the potential to cultivate transformational discourse around those gameful experiences. It is not just content knowledge that is enhanced in such play and discourse but communication, teamwork, leadership and collaboration can all be positively impacted by games and simulation being integrated into academic programs. This session will provide an opportunity to experience the value of play, share experiences, raise concerns and plan some areas to explore further in 2018.
