I am quite involved in games lately, and am very impressed with the pedagogy surrounding the use of games. I think the enjoyment and pursuit of games is built into our DNA, and is puzzle solving and abstract thinking about the reason and meaning behind the puzzle. Technology has boosted the capacity to design and deliver games which stimulate to a greater extent our natural tendency to want to participate in (and win!) games.

I teach management and computer information systems courses and fully expect to incorporate game based learning methods into my classes in the near future.

I always am aware of the focal vocabulary of a sub-group and education has as many words use differently or made up words that are foreign to most of us non-educators (I have been in private industry till six years ago when I started teaching part time at a community college), and "pedagogy" was one of them, I though we were all going to get work done on our feet! [no kidding] and the focal vocabulary of education pedagogy is especially daunting. So I am very careful when I talk to my peers who don't know gamification to make sure my vocabulary isn't full of all of the focal vocabulary. I am interested to know what you come up with to add the game based learning methods to your classes.

Hi Taki,

Welcome to the Games MOOC. We have a number of management and business people in this course. I'm also finding out that we have numerous ways to approach game based learning from that content area. We'll be focusing on apps and game projects. From the management side, I think you see where a case study can be broken up into a game pretty easily.
