Multimodal & Game-based Pedagogy | Monday, November 4 | 6:30-8:30pm | Kahdeidra Martin

Details: Participants will connect learning theories to student-centered praxis, explore several classroom examples, and take away resources to develop their own teaching materials. This skills lab is a hands-on lesson planning and supportive peer review workshop. Bring your ideas, big or small, and we’ll learn by doing…and doing…and doing again.

Creating Interactive Text with Twine | Monday, November 11 | 6:30-8:30pm | Raven Gomez & Anthony Wheeler

Details: In this workshop, we will explore practical aspects of designing a choose-your-own-adventure style interactive text. We will use Twine, a free, online tool for creating choice-based games. We will cover not only the “how” of using Twine, but also a bit of the “why,” in terms of game design in general and game-based learning in specific. No prior programming experience will be required.

Data Visualization | Monday, November 18 | 6:30-8:30pm | Hannah Aizenman

Details: This lab will introduce students to visualization techniques in Excel (such as pivot tables and different chart types) and table-based GIS visualizations. No previous experience needed.​
