Using Games in the Language, Literature and Linguistics Classroom

January 26, 2009 by Barbara Bird

Games and simulations offer the opportunity for students to learn
through meaningful activity. Join us on Thursday, Jan 29 at 2:30 pm in 259A Van Hise
for an introduction to using games in the language, literature and linguistics classroom.

This brief workshop is offered in
preparation for Engaging to Learn: Simulations and Games 2009 Call for Ideas. The DoIT Engage Grant Program is again offering opportunities for faculty, instructional staff and teaching assistants
who are seeking an interactive solution to disciplinary teaching or
learning challenges to explore and experiment with developing
simulations and/or games for learning.

During the January 29 workshop Doug Worsham, L&S Learning Support Services, will present an overview of what's going on in the world of games in language learning.

Engage Grant recipients from the College of Letters & Science will share their experiences working with games, languages, literature and linguistics.

Chris Lupton, DoIT Academic Technology, will be on hand to offer advice and guidance on the Engage grant application
