Teaching Tactics – Games

Special Call for Teaching Tactics – Learning Through Games in the Classroom

For a Special Issue of the Journal on Games and Learning

We seek one page Teaching Tactics that describe a learning design you’ve developed that involves students playing a game.

In 1 page (400 words):

  • State succinctly the context within which you used the strategy including: characteristics of your students, the institution and the course, when in the semester you use this tactic, and how long it takes.
  • State the pedagogical purpose of the strategy
  • Provide a description of the strategy itself in brief, clear language
  • State why and how the strategy was effective – i.e., (how it supports student learning, including some analysis that generalizes the principles at work that make the particular strategy transferable to different contexts and subject matter).
