We can all use fresh ideas to engage students with course content. What can the games we play teach us about designing our courses? Games have kept people engaged for decades because they have systematically designed engagement practices.
This 20-Minute Mentor explores how to recognize and apply these engagement practices to course design. You’ll learn that the core principles of course design are very similar to the principles of game design, how to look at games for inspiration, and that it can be easy to modify your courses to make them more engaging.
