Description

Colorful maze image with gameful learning summer institute typefaceJoin us the week of Monday, July 23 at Palmer Commons (100 Washtenaw Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48109) for the 2nd annual Gameful Learning Summer Institute (GLSI), a 1.5 day conference centered around gameful pedagogy.

GLSI attendees will explore gameful learning while hearing from others who have taught gameful courses. This institute is intended for Higher Education faculty, K-12 teachers, Instructional Designers, Ed Tech Administrators and anyone interested in a method of teaching that supports student ownership of learning.

On Wednesday, July 25, we will offer an optional, half-day workshop on GradeCraft – the first student management system that can help support a gameful teaching strategy. Upon completion of the workshop, attendees will have all of the tools to plan and design their own gameful courses using GradeCraft.

For questions about accessibility or to request accommodations please contact Trevor Parnell, Events and Marketing Specialist, at tparn@umich.edu or (586) - 596 - 0782.

Early Bird Registration- Receive $50 off of the Post Conference GradeCraft workshop if you register by Friday, May 18th!
