Join us the week of Monday, July 23 at Palmer Commons (100 Washtenaw Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48109) for the 2nd annual Gameful Learning Summer Institute (GLSI), a 1.5 day conference centered around gameful pedagogy.
What is Gameful Learning?
Gameful learning is a new pedagogical approach that takes inspiration from the engagement seen in video games, and uses it to reimagine what traditional learning environments could be like – particularly, what role students can play and how the design of assessment systems supports student engagement. Gameful learning, is centered around designing environments where students are encouraged to focus on the craft of learning. Students have autonomy over their learning experience and are encouraged to make self-aware choices regarding how to learn and demonstrate their knowledge of the course material. Gameful courses encourage students to take risks because the structure of the course allows them the ability to recover from failure.
GLSI attendees will explore gameful learning while hearing from others who have taught gameful courses. This institute is intended for Higher Education faculty, K-12 teachers, Instructional Designers, Ed Tech Administrators and anyone interested in a method of teaching that supports student ownership of learning.
On Wednesday, July 25, we will offer an optional, half-day workshop on GradeCraft – the first learning management system that can help support a gameful teaching strategy. Upon completion of the workshop, attendees will have all of the tools to plan and design their own gameful courses using GradeCraft.
