The CUNY Games Network of the City University of New York is excited to announce The CUNY Games Conference 5.0, to be held on January 18, 2019, at the Borough of Manhattan Community College in New York City. Registration is open: https://gamesconf2019.commons.gc.cuny.edu/register/
This year, the CUNY Games Conference distills its best cutting-edge interactive presentations into a one-day event to promote and discuss game-based pedagogies in higher education, focusing particularly on non-digital learning activities that faculty can use in the classroom every day. The conference will include workshops lead by CUNY Games Organizers on how to modify existing games for the classroom, how to incorporate elements of play into simulations and critical thinking activities, as well as poster sessions, playtesting, and game play. For the digitally minded, we will also offer a workshop in creating computer games in Unity.
Workshops will include:
- Redesign: Modifying Tabletop Games for Instruction with Joe Bisz and Carolyn Stallard
- Introduction to Game Design and Programming in Unity — open to both faculty and students, with Deborah Sturm or Robert Duncan
- Game up your Math and Science Classes with Kathleen Offenholley
- Allure of Play Game Design Workshop with Joe Bisz
- Poster and Game Demos!
- And an ongoing Game play and Open Space
The heart of game-based learning lies in its inspiration: the games we play. Therefore, on the second day of the conference, we will be playing board and card games in a social, bonding atmosphere. See the schedule for more detail.
