On April 28, I attended the Rutgers-Camden Faculty eLearning Conference. The event showcases faculty use of instructional technology in specific, concrete ways. This year, many presenters demonstrated alternative tools for gauging and assessing student learning— without using exams!
On February 25, I attended the Simulation and Gamification Symposium at Rutgers University. I attended Conquer the Fire Pit: Using Donkey Kong and Tiddly Winks in Higher Education with presenters Scot Osterweil and Beth Ritter-Guth. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from an event like this.
