CUNY Games Conference 9.0: Save the Date!

The CUNY Games Network of the City University of New York is excited to announce The CUNY Games Conference 9.0 on January 23 & 24th, 2023.

This two-day hybrid conference will have online sessions on Day 1 and in-person sessions on Day 2. Online sessions will have participant-led presentations, less formal idea exchanges held in breakout rooms, and a handful of organizer-led workshops. Our in-person Day 2 will have a short session led by the organizers on modding tabletop games for education, and then presenters will be invited to playtest their own games or playful activities (either completed or in-progress). There will also be time for the free play of published tabletop games.

The CUNY Games Network promotes game-based pedagogies, focusing particularly on non-digital playful learning activities faculty can use in the classroom every day. We aim to bring together all stakeholders: teachers, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, and game designers. This year we are also opening the conference’s doors to include K-12 teachers. Both CUNY and non-CUNY participation is welcome—and completely free of charge.

“First Fridays” series starts on Friday, April 1st from 12-1 PM EDT. 

The CUNY Games Network is launching a new mini series!

Join us for the kickoff of our “First Fridays” series on Friday, April 1st from 12-1 PM EDT. Meet on Zoom for an idea exchange around the topic “Bring What’s Broken.”
An “Idea Exchange” is an opportunity to brainstorm with others around a topic related to game-based learning. Anyone is welcome to share things that are not working in your course, bring ideas for how you’ve “fixed” an activity using GBL, or just observe and be part of the conversation. This series is participant-driven; rather than presenting a formal workshop, we provide the space and opportunity for CGN members to meet and brainstorm around game-based learning ideas, offering support as needed.
Hope you’ll be able to join us! No, this is not an April 1st prank. :)

Educators coming together to explore how the principles of games promote learning
