Course Description

Games have long been used in education as a means to enhance, amplify and transform learning. Educational games are intended to combine learning with playful elements. Through game play, students may be motivated to acquire new skills and concepts while having fun playing at the same time. But what constitutes a good learning game? What essential design elements should be included? How can games be incorporated into our teaching and learning practice? In this course, we will try to answer those questions by showcasing a few examples of educational games and exploring some aspects of game design, prototyping and best practices regarding game implementation. There will also be time after the course for individual projects and questions

You will learn to:

  • Explore examples of educational games used in teaching and learning
  • Identify game design principles and tools to build a basic game
  • Design and prototype a simple game based on learning outcomes
