Games4Learning Discussion: Games as an Interactive Classroom Technique

This discussion will focus on an article from the International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, "Games as an Interactive Classroom Technique: Perceptions of Corporate Trainers, College Instructors and Students." (2007, Vol 19(1), pp. 53-63) You can access the article at http://www.isetl.org/ijtlhe/pdf/IJTLHE157.pdf.

The article describes a two-part study that measures perceptions of interactive classroom teaching for adult learning. The two main objectives were to determine rates of classroom techniques used and to determine influences on teaching styles. The article makes suggestions for strategies to implement games in college classrooms. 

We will discuss the study design, implementation, and outcomes. Please come with questions and comments to contribute to the discussion.
