As we hit that luckiest of days, we’re joined by a pair of MiD first-timers: Ali Kocho-Williams from Clarkson University and Pijus Kruminas of ISM University of Management & Economics. Both are here to talk about their use of wargames in their college classes
Don’t forget, you can always catch up with past episodes on the “podcast” tab of our site.
Saddle up as we discuss how they developed their own love of gaming, and when they started to bring it into the classroom with them. What effects have the games had on student engagement? How do their fellow faculty members view their use of games in the classroom? How would you compare learning about what did happen to what could have happened? What’s coming up next in their game-based lessons?
Some other discussions around games in classroom?

The Armchair Dragoons, they’re a hoot,

They conquer the land,
With dice rolls and strategy, they’re astute!
