Information Session: Are Games and Simulations a Good 'Fit' for Your Curriculum?
Authors: Penny Ralston-Berg and Eric B. Bauman
The conversation was very active as we discussed strategies and key questions to ask in determining what makes a good curricular “fit” for games and simulations. Examples were shown from a variety of subject matter and the audience had a chance to walk through the process of determining fit based on learning objectives. We also stepped out side the instructional alignment and talked about the value of "ridiculous games" for stress relief and cognitive down time between other intense tasks.
