Short DescriptionCan you enhance a teaching lesson or training exercise with the mechanics of board games in only 20 minutes? For educators, training managers, content & game designers.
Long DescriptionWhat does the lesson “Finding Citations,” the game “Trivial Pursuit,” and the mechanic “Bluffing” all have in common? In this boot camp brainstorm, your team is given a mission: to enhance a teaching lesson or training exercise with the mechanics of popular board games in only 20 minutes. Whether you need to teach the rules of citation or of interviewing, there’s usually a game plan that can help. If you’re an educator, training manager, presenter, instructional designer, or an actual game designer, you’ll learn how to integrate non-digital educational games or simulations into your classroom or workspace. This full-featured workshop begins with an interactive lecture on the power of game pedagogy, then segues into whole room active game design, and is kept at an optimum size so we can explore your instructional problems in depth. Led by a professor from the City University of New York.
