Play to Learn: Designing Effective Learning Games

8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Tuesday, October 28

In this workshop, run by Sharon Boller and Karl Kapp, participants will explore a variety of games to identify what makes them playable and then design their own learning games using a step-by-step approach to design. You will build a prototype of your game and actually play it—learning how to play test and how to iterate to improve the game’s playability and efficacy as a learning tool.
