Hot Topics

April Focus: Gamification

Gamification or game-based learning is a process of infusing gaming elements into tasks, projects and even assessments to create a more engaging experience. Gamification provides opportunities for safe failure, teamwork and motivates participating through rewarding challenges. Join us for Serious Fun An Educational Games Gathering to learn more about gamification in higher education.

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. 

Highlights this year include: 

  • 25 faculty presentations
  • 3D planetarium sessions
  • keynote speaker Amy Fredeen, from e-Line Media

Friday, April 17th, CPISB Atrium  |  8:00 am - 4:00 pm
