Higher Education is a Massively Multiplayer Game

Date and time: Thursday, 10/17/2013
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Location: Dockery 205
Description: In the best-designed games, our human experience is perfectly optimized: we have important work to do, we're surrounded by potential collaborators, and we learn quickly and in a low-risk environment. When we're playing a good online game, we get constant useful feedback, we turbocharge the neurochemistry that makes challenge fun, and we feel an insatiable curiosity about the world around us. None of this is by accident. Game developers have spent three decades figuring out how to make us happier and more collaborative, how to make learning more fun and social, and how to satisfy our hunger for meaning and success. All of these game-world insights can be applied directly to reinvent higher education as we know it.
