The Institute of Social Informatics (ISITI) is hosting the first Gamification Seminar on the 12th of December 2018. The seminar presents ideas about playful and gameful learning, to extend formal engagement methods in teaching. Gameful learning experience promotes lifelong learning, and reshapes thinking about learning for 21st century knowledge economies and open societies. The seminar taps into playful inspirations of existing traditional games played by various cultures in Sarawak and all around the globe. In the workshop, participants will develop playful solutions to address serious challenges, themes and topics.
Two keynote speakers will speak about gamification of learning, from perspectives and experiences in the UK, the US and in Malaysia. Ideas about gamifying learning through lesson design will be presented in Creative Play sessions during the seminar, to provide a first-hand experience to co-create gamified learning experiences. Success stories by teachers who have used gamification in their own classrooms will also be presented at the seminar.
The venue for the seminar is at a newly designed Gamification Lab, a first in Malaysia, dedicated to gamification research and development to innovate teaching and learning at primary, secondary and tertiary levels.
This event is open to public. Lecturers, teachers, instructors and trainers will find contents of the seminar relevant to their professional development as educators.
