Panel Discussion and Closing Reception for Analogy + Interaction
September 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This show is coordinated by the Simulations + Gaming + Role-Playing (SGR) Community of Scholars. This multi-disciplinary group brings together members of the UT community who share an interest in researching the development and use of simulations, gaming, role-playing, and similar strategies for teaching and learning. Such strategies are among the latest developments in higher education, and have been shown to create interactivity and collaboration, increase engagement and retention, deepen reflection and understanding, engender positive values and thoughtful behavior, and open authentic spaces for real-world problem-solving. Games and Simulations provide players/users with the opportunity to not only visualize, but to experience the world of a problem from a variety of perspectives.
Come join us for a closing reception and discussion! Learn how games and gaming theory can be used to approach new way of learning, collaboration, and problem solving.
