#TUD-CH-Informatica#TUD KrentenbollencolloquiumWhat Is This Talk About?

Q: What would you learn about the Van Gogh Museum from the poster? #TUD Krentenbollencolloquium

Gaming is challenge and reward, tension and catharsis Game universes populated with all levels of skillGame universes populated with all personalitiesGaming used to be about youths, now all generationsGamification* in Higher Education = Rich Challenge* Making courses similar to game universesTake-Home Message#TUD KrentenbollencolloquiumWhy Fix It If It Aint Broken?Well, its broken (at least grammar)

New generation of studentsAttention spanIs higher education needed?A technical education?!

New wave of studentsInternational means multi-culturalGaming may be the unifying factor for the student nation

New ambition of TU DelftVerslagpercentage too low, but cannot select students find ways to motivate them!

#TUD KrentenbollencolloquiumWhy Gamification? Science and scholarship are much like games. Players are drawn into games because of their challenges, and playing involves creating, testing and revising strategies as well as the skills necessary for progressing in the game. Mayra, Game Studies, 2009, p.3

#TUD KrentenbollencolloquiumTraditional GamingPlay is a voluntary activity or occupation executed within certain fixed limits of time and place, according to rules freely accepted but absolutely binding, having its aim in itself and accompanied by a feeling of tension, joy, and the consciousness that it is different from ordinary life Huizinga, Homo Ludens, 1938, p.28
