Game-Based Learning Faculty Institute

Enhancing Student Learning by Incorporating Game-Based Learning into Your Course

Applications must be submitted online by May 2nd to be considered.  If you have any questions about this application or about this faculty learning community, please contact Lisa Kelly at lisa-kelly@uiowa.edu.
Background: 
Starting in May 2014, 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.
 
Purpose: 
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.
