Workshop set for May 12

Game piece graphicStarting in May, the Center for Teaching and ITS-Instructional Services will work with a group of UI faculty members who have identified a learning need in their students and would like to find or help devise a game to help students address that learning challenge.

A workshop for the Game-Based Learning Faculty Institute, "Enhancing Student Learning by Incorporating Game-Based Learning into Your Course," will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, May 12, in 2390 University Capitol Centre. Applications must be submitted online at by May 2 to be considered.

This collaborative opportunity will enable faculty participants to:

  • Work with ITS-Instructional Services and Center for Teaching staff to focus on at least one student learning challenge, research games that could be incorporated into the course, and consider content and designs for developing new games;
  • Connect cognitive knowledge and intellectual skills to the purposes of specific games;
  • Create a faculty learning community that continues to gain knowledge and skills, assess the impact of using games in their courses, and share information and encouragement.
