Event Details

Join us on Thursday, March 29 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in Boardroom 5 of the Palmer Commons (100 Washtenaw Ave) for a meeting of the Gameful Learning Community of Practice.

You can RSVP for this event here. Lunch will be provided.

Gameful learning is a pedagogical approach that takes inspiration from how good games function and applies that to the design of learning environments. Gameful is grounded in  self-determination theory to build student autonomy, competency, and belonging.

Participants at this meeting  will hear from several instructors who are using gameful pedagogy in their course(s) and will have an opportunity to connect with colleagues to discuss successes and challenges with gameful learning.  

This community of practice (CoP) intends to create a space for instructors to engage in meaningful and productive discussion about their use of gameful principles in teaching. Participants will be expected to share their own successes and challenges with gameful learning, will have the opportunity to connect with colleagues from multiple units on campus, and will contribute to the university’s effort to explore transformative teaching and learning. This CoP is open to anyone at U-M who is interested in thinking about the interplay of gameful design principles and learning, whether you have already integrated gameful elements into your teaching (regardless of what tools you are using to do so) or are just beginning to consider the possibilities of gameful learning.

You can RSVP for this event here. Lunch will be provided.
