|Presenter(s)||Valerie Waldron, Johnathon Beals, Phill Cameron and Brenda Imber|
|Time||Thursday, October 11, 3:00p-4:00p|
|Description||This workshop, designed primarily for instructors and instructional designers, is intended to help attendees evaluate how well, and in what ways, off the shelf games may fit into their teaching.
Presenters will discuss their experiences using a modified version of a commercial board game in a language classroom. We will explore:
This session is divided into three sections. Attendees will first play a shortened version of our modified game. Then they will share their reactions and reflections. Finally, participants will evaluate several hypothetical case studies intended to provoke thought about using games creatively in the classroom. Attendees are encouraged to bring in their own scenarios for further discussion.
