Game Elements for Learning (GE4L)
Wednesday, June 26, 2013 1:00:00 PM CDT - 2:00:00 PM CDT
What if you could build a course as a game, using native LMS features? What exactly are game elements for learning? How can the elements be applied to teaching? Do they add value to learning? 

To answer these questions, Academic Partnerships Faculty eCommons presents a micro-MOOC, Game Elements for Learning (GE4L). Kicking things off is a free live webinar, hosted by Kenneth C. (Casey) Green of The Campus Computing Project, who will moderate a lively conversation with Dr. Gerol Petruzella, Coordinator of Academic Technology at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. 

Dr. Petruzella will discuss his experience designing, building, and teaching an introductory philosophy course as "Dungeons & Discourse," a quest-based roleplaying game.  This webinar is part of a professional development micro-MOOC, Game Elements for Learning (GE4L). GE4L introduces participants to game elements for teaching and learning through sharing, game elements, discussion, and participation in self-selected methods.
