Using Games to Explore Complex Processes in Global History


May 14 - 16, 2018 (teachers may attend 1, 2 or 3 days)
 Three historians, a game designer, and a group of teachers walk into a
room...
This 3-day symposium will explore the utility of using games and
game-creation to teach historical concepts and thinking skills. Each day
will focus on a different major historical moment and different components
of gameplay. Teachers will gain in-depth knowledge of a historical concept
and learn how to turn that understanding into a game. Participants will
leave with new games, background resources, and a process to engage students
in their own game-creation. Each day of the program can stand alone, but
teachers who would like to develop more facility with game-creation are
encouraged to attend more than one day.
