Changing Higher Education, One Game at a Time

What are the Game Changers?

Welcome to Game Changers CU! This is a community site where faculty interested in integrating gaming into their classroom can share and learn about activities and tactics for doing so.

Game Changers CU is managed by gamification pedagogy champions from the ASSETT (Arts & Sciences Support of Education Through Technology) Innovation Incubator Student Success Team.

Gamification Resources

The gamification of learning is an educational approach to motivate students to learn by using video game design and game elements in learning environments. Find out how we’re doing this at CU and learn how to incorporate this in your classroom!

Game Changers is facilitating a virtual system-wide faculty reading group (CU Boulder, Denver, and Colorado Springs) to explore the value of the Humanities expressed through the Reacting to the Past (RTTP) pedagogy using Minds on Fire: How Role-Immersion Games Transform College, by Mark Carnes. Invited guest speakers will address the benefits of RTTP and gamification pedagogies.
