Serious Fun: An Educational Games Gathering

Serious Fun is an engaging event designed to bring together educators and students interested in using games and/or game elements for teaching and learning. A collaborative effort across the University of Alaska system, this one-day conference will provide opportunities for attendees to share ideas, discuss the latest issues and trends, and build networks to make better use of games and gamification in education.  It is our hope that by building a community of talented and dedicated people, we can share our knowledge and create better educational games.
