Faculty Professional Development Spring 2015

This spring we are hand selecting several faculty members of the community to participate in the upcoming Faculty Professional Development Program centered around Gamification. This 7 week, 90% online program will explain in detail the principles of Gamification, what benefits it can bring to the classroom, and how to implement game theory related techniques into practice. The coursework will be designed with relevance and practicality in mind, so most learning projects will be tailored to individual participant's classroom needs. Active participants in the program will qualify for up to $200 in stipend!

In this program faculty members will learn to: 

  • Discover how to find the motivations of their students
  • Find out what games can teach us about learning
  • Integrate their own teaching styles with the technologies to improve engagement
