Is there something instructors can learn from gamers? Video game designers don’t seem like an obvious source of information about good teaching, however, a recent article published in The Chronicle of Higher Education (http://chronicle.com/article/5-Lessons-Professors-Can-Learn/63708/) offers some interesting advice from video game researchers:
- Give frequent and detailed feedback.
- Test before going live.
- Narrative can answer the question “Why are we learning this?”
- Don’t be afraid of fun.
