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.
