Registration open for instructional game design workshop
K-State faculty/staff can now sign up for the second instructional game design workshop, scheduled for 1:15-5:15 p.m. July 12 in 301 Hale Library. The workshop is limited to 18 faculty/staff, and sign-ups are already at the halfway point due to inclusion of requests from the waitlist for the June workshop. To register for this event, faculty/staff should email Ben Ward as soon as possible.
Games have the potential to create learning experiences that are goal-oriented, problem-based, and often very complex. In novel ways, they let players explore, experiment, and test their understanding of the material they are learning. This workshop is an opportunity to experience first-hand both game play and exploration of the fundamentals of game design.
Ben Ward, an instructional designer in the Information Technology Assistance Center, has more than 15 years of experience in game design and gaming.
