ASPECTS 2: Gamification in Teaching [TG1/ASPECTS2_Gamification]
This workshop is part of the cpd25 Aspects programme, aimed at library staff looking to acquire additional skills and knowledge or staff working towards Chartership.
Gamification in Teaching
Games and other forms of playful learning have become increasingly popular in information literacy teaching. This introductory workshop will explore the value of using games to encourage engagement, interaction and reflection and share some practical examples of how digital and analogue games have been developed and used in academic libraries.
The facilitators will share their experiences of using games and other play related activities as a way of enhancing information literacy teaching, as well as in other contexts such as staff development programmes and promoting library services.
Delegates will have the opportunity to try out games and activities and consider how they might use similar techniques in their own teaching.
We hope this event will be of interest to anyone interested in teaching or training within libraries, and particularly to those working in or considering moving into Academic Liaison / Subject Librarian roles.
