language of the event

Do game or game principles belong in university teaching? If so, what didactic "work" can it do for us? This workshop will show teaching opportunities in which play is an effective didactic tool. We will discuss in detail how to use play and game principles to make it work how we need it to, to reinforce learning and not just be fun. We will show how you can employ game elements and principles in teaching. We will also design game elements for our teaching. And, of course, we will share good practices from everyone involved. So, if you have games you use successfully in your teaching, bring them along.


  • What is a game, and how a game can help me.
  • Known and lesser-known game principles (inspiration).
  • Elements of game design you can use to innovate your teaching.
  • Designing your own game to innovate my teaching.
