Seminar: Games, Play and Education

Like Ralf and Christina, I’m offering a seminar for the ePedagogy Design programme, open also for students of the Hamburg University’s Faculty of Education (33 participants as yet).
It will focus on game based learning, striving for an overview on learning theories, theories on game and play, and selected medium specific theories and practices dealing with (digital) game design. The goal would be to reach a deeper insight in the workings of educational games, on what different cognitive levels a (computer)game could be used as a learning environment, to get an overview on some popular genres of Game Based Learning and generally to take a personal and reflected stance on this topic.
Project work will aim for a documented and reflected draft, design or analysis of a gaming environment usable or used for education. Documentation and results will be made available in the projectroom’s public wiki.

The seminar will take place with synchronous sessions at tuesdays, from 12:00 to 14:00 german time (13:00 to 15:00 Finland time), where you should be available to participate via internet connection, and asynchronous, self-organised project work in groups of two to four students.
For questions or requests for participation as student or guest, please mail to wey-han.tan [at] uni-hamburg.de.
