Games group meets September 20

September 15, 2010

During the 2010-2011 academic year, a Serious Games Learning Community at the University of Notre Dame is exploring the use of games in higher education. The group meets next on Monday, September 20, 11:30 to 1:00 pm in Room 109 Stinson-Remick Hall.

The group is open to Notre Dame faculty, staff, and students. Its goal is to find or create games designed to improve learning – and implement those games in courses. Members can be Notre Dame faculty, staff, or students. The group’s activities will include game play, reading, discussion, and presentations. The objectives are:

  1. Learn what makes up a game (iteration, story line, etc.)
  2. Learn how games have been used effectively in higher education
  3. Identify serious games in different disciplines and experience them firsthand
  4. Conceptualize a variety of serious games
  5. Develop one or more games from scratch
  6. Share what we learn, find, and create with the ND community
