U-M Gameful Course Design Summer Institute

Ann Arbor, MI - Jul 24 11:30 am to Jul 25, 2017 4:00 am

Price: $51 to $250

In this 1.5 day Gameful Course Design Summer Institute, you will learn about Gameful Learning, learn from others who have taught gamefully and work with other educators collaborating on recreating/redesigning a course of your own. We will also highlight GradeCraft – the first student management system that can help support a gameful teaching strategy. By the end of the conference, you should have a plan and design for your gameful course.

What is Gameful Learning?

Gameful learning is a new pedagogical approach that takes inspiration from the engagement we see 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. More than gamification, gameful learning is not about making school easy or turning learning into a video game. Instead, gameful is about designing environments where students are encouraged to focus on the craft of learning; where they take responsibility for their learning, and make self-aware choices regarding how they can best learn and be assessed on their development of content mastery. Gameful classes encourage students to take risks because students can recover from failure.

Who Should Attend:

This event is designed for higher education faculty, K-12 teachers, and professional development staff who are interested in a method of teaching that supports student ownership of learning.
