Student engagement is directly linked to improving retention and graduation rates. Join us as we explore board games, maker spaces, virtual worlds, commercial video games, serious games, and simulations that engage students, promote learning, and foster critical thinking. This whole day event will be held on February 25 at the Livingston Student Center, Rutgers University, Piscataway. Expert gamers will help you navigate through role playing, strategy techniques, poll taking, and many other interactive options. Bring your laptop and learn how simulation and gamification are excellent academic tools.
