A few months ago I was interviewed by Dustin Ramsdell of the Student Affairs Collective for an episode on gamification. Dustin also interviewed Stacy Jacob: a professor of Higher Education at Slippery Rock University. Stacy and I had collaborated in the past on a NASPA presentation covering gamification that was ultimately not accepted.
Since then we’ve defined our own niches in the field with Stacy applying gamification to her higher education classes and with me utilizing games-based learning to train my staff as well as incentivize and encourage success in our student leadership program.
If you’re still not sure what gamification or games-based learning are then I encourage you to listen to the episode below!
