Museums and Gaming*

How are games shifting museum education and interpretation? This workshop will focus on the basic principles of game design, pedagogy, and evaluation and provide an overview of innovative projects happening in the field – both digital and analog.
Participants will not learn how to code in this workshop – this is a session about understanding how games work and why they’re worth thinking about in the context of museum interpretation. No tech experience or background is necessary.
Should you fail to withdraw 48+ hours in advance, thereby preventing your colleagues on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $10 per missed workshop.  Please note, it is your responsibility to sign next to your name on the attendance sheet for each workshop session.  A blank signature spot will result in a penalty charge.
*This workshop was made possible by the combined efforts of the Inforum and the Tech Fund.
