Using Games in the Classroom to Engage Students

Are you curious about how others are using games in their classroom? Have you heard that a colleague ‘gamified’ their activities and would like to learn more? Or are you just generally intrigued by gamification pedagogy? In the academic year 2021-22, the ASSETT Innovation Incubator Student Success team will facilitate a community of practice focused on the gamification of learning pedagogy (GCoP.)  Each month, we’ll welcome a guest speaker who will discuss their approach to gamification. This is a great opportunity to gather and learn with other like-minded campus community members.

All sessions will take place from 9 – 10:15 am via zoom
