Game Design Workshop scheduled May 24

By Ben Ward

Faculty and staff can now sign up for the newly revised, instructional game design workshop scheduled from 1-5 p.m. Thursday, May 24, in the Hemisphere Room, 501 Hale Library. Please register promptly as the workshop is limited to 24 faculty/staff, and several spots have already been filled by waitlist requests from previous sessions.

Do you love games?  Are you looking for new ways to engage and challenge your students? Come join us in our intensive, hands-on, instructional game design workshop. We will be playing, deconstructing, building and critiquing games as we explore some of the processes and tools used in game design. Be prepared to participate in learning creative and innovative ways to approach teaching, even if you don’t plan to use games in your classroom. Game-based learning holds great promise for higher education to make learning both more engaging and motivating for students. Come join the fun!

The workshop will be led by Ben Ward, an instructional designer in the Information Technology Assistance Center with more than 15 years of experience in game design and gaming. Please email bward@k-state.edu to reserve your spot today, or if you have questions about the workshop. Registration will be ending on May 23.
