You are cordially invited to luncheon with the Oneonta Faculty Convivium on Thursday, November 2, noon to 1:00 p.m., in Le Café, Morris. Dr. Karen Stewart, Assistant Professor of Communication & Media, will present a talk titled, “Follow Me into the World of Video Games, Applied Pedagogies, and Arts-Based Learning.” Abstract: Video games are more than entertainment. In addition to being fun, they represent new ways of learning, sharing information, and facilitating creative expression. As such, video games offer rich and exciting connections to applied pedagogies and arts-based learning. In this talk, Dr. Stewart shares how she accidently became a video game scholar, and how her research into visual novel video games is turning into a dynamic applied learning project that is attracting students from a variety of disciplines across campus. She also discusses different ways gaming can be a conceptual framework for creating a non-traditional learning environment.
Seating is limited. To reserve a seat please call X2517 prior to October 31. Vegetarian meals are available.
