Teach, Play, Learn

Call for Proposals

The Teach, Play, Learn Conference is accepting proposals for presentations on real-life usage, empirical studies, and/or theoretical discussions of game-based teaching and learning. We are particularly interested in interactive workshops involving the best practices of teaching with games or playful elements in the classroom.

Possible topics may include:

  • use of board, card, or video games for educational purposes
  • gamification of the course
  • simulations and role playing
  • use of Augmented and/or Virtual Reality (AR, VR)
  • study and research of games in the context of education
  • use of games in other educational contexts

Presenters will be asked to choose one of two session options: Concurrent Sessions or Quick Hits. Concurrent Sessions will be 50 minutes long, presenters may want to leave 5-10 minutes at the end of their session for discussion. Quick Hits are lightning fast micro-presentations that should last no more than 5 minutes. You will be asked to select whether you would be open to changing presentation options depending on the overall needs of the conference.

Proposals must include the following and be submitted online:

  1. Session format - Concurrent (~50 minutes) or Quick Hit (5-10 minutes)
  2. Elevator Pitch (100 words or less)
  3. Summary (750 words or less)

The review process involves a blind reading by at least three individuals drawn from a pool of faculty members and the Teach, Play, Learn Conference planning committee members.

Proposals are due Friday, April 27th. We will contact all proposal recipients by May 11th.
