Meeting ID: 827 9304 8309 || Passcode: 872312
Following our successful virtual conference, the CUNY Games Network aims to provide ongoing opportunities for our community to meet and brainstorm virtually in 2021. Join us Friday, March 5 from 12:30-2 PM EST for a “lunch break” idea exchange session.
The event will consist of four parts. Drop in for any or all portions:
12:30-12:45 PM: Check-In
Many of us are in the early stages of a new semester, or about to begin one. What GBL topics would you like to workshop with peers if we host more online events? If you attended our conference, are you implementing anything you learned? Share activities you’re using in the classroom and come prepared to discuss ideas for how the CUNY Games Network can support your pedagogy in 2021.
12:45-1:30 PM: Gamify One Small Thing!
While we may dream of incorporating complex games and mechanics into our teaching, in reality we don’t always have time for in-depth design and implementation.In this idea exchange session, share small games or gamified activities that instructors can easily add to their curriculum. If you don’t have anything to share, that’s fine – collect new ideas from your peers.
1:30-1:45 PM: What’s Your Game Plan?: “One Minute for One Small Thing!”
Drop in for a lightning-speed variant of Joe Bisz’s What’s Your Game Plan? game design workshop.
1:45-2 PM: Debrief
Debrief on what you’ve learned. Make a plan for incorporating something new into your teaching, and share ideas for future CUNY Games Network online events.
***Bonus! 2-3 PM: Gameplay***
Drop in for open gameplay, playtesting, and discussion of how to modify games for learning. Sign up to host or participate in games here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UeyLB0X75_sbAbdYf_lIkyGC-aZFea8LjfQKMvsDplA/edit?usp=sharing
