Gameful Pedagogy in Practice
Laura Shackelford (Anthropology)

Laura will describe gameful strategies she's added to her course including a nontraditional, additive grading system where students build up their grade from zero, assignment choice, and opportunities for practice and recovery within the learning environment. These pedagogical changes support learner autonomy, and allow students to take risks and practice resiliency in the face of classroom challenges.

Join us ONLINE on the first Thursdays of the month from 12pm-1pm as we welcome new faculty, new stories, and new ways of thinking about the art of teaching. For more information, or to suggest a speaker for the series, please contact: Ava Wolf at arwolf@illinois.edu.
