Edugaming Workshop through NSF Grant

Community Services Center
8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Through a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) is offering a five-day Edugaming 2017 workshop for teachers on June 19-22 with an additional workshop date of Nov. 4, 2017. Successful applicants will learn to design effective, immersive learning games in this workshop. Through hands-on activities and presentations from educators and industry experts, participants will learn a variety of game design approaches that remove the “quiz” aspect of educational games and replace it with exploratory, engaging techniques.
 
Participants who complete all five days of the workshop and develop a game for use in their classrooms in accordance with the Edugaming Framework presented in the workshop, will be paid $500. All middle school, high school and college teachers, as well as pre-service education majors are eligible to participate. Games created through this workshop will not be computer-based so they can be created and used by all educators, regardless of technical limitations.
 
This event, held at LCCC’s main campus in Schnecksville, Pa., will provide a continental breakfast and lunch to all participants. There is no cost to participants.
 
Space is limited, and an application is required to be submitted on or before May 12, 2017. No previous experience with game design is necessary. For more information and an application, contact computergaming@lccc.edu.
