Games are an increasingly common part of classroom education. Whether we’re gamifying the structure of a course or bringing in a game to teach a particular concept, the interactivity increases student engagement and creates memorable learning experiences. In this presentation, we will discuss strategies for enabling students to design games. Building games as a course project challenges students to identify and teach the key concepts in course material. This design challenge seeks to facilitate transference while students produce games that are memorable and reusable.
