INF 355 - Game Based Learning

3 hours
This course examines gaming principles–skill points, levels, bosses, etc.–and their relevance in digital and hybrid learning environments, both in traditional learning institutions (e.g., primary, secondary, and post-secondary schools) and non-traditional programs of learning (e.g., massive open online courses). Students will critically analyze a variety of digital games to highlight their successful and less successful aspects related to learning. Working in teams, students will design their own game-based learning system or conceptual prototype. Other topics will address compatible learning theories related to game-based learning, among other things. Learning experiences will employ multimedia and literature-based discussion, team-based projects, and informal reflective writing (e.g., blogs or journals).

Prerequisite(s): INF 110  and INF 120
