Tony Crider, Professor of Astrophysics, Elon University:

The Reacting to the Past series of games, peer-reviewed by the Reacting Consortium and published by Norton, have college students play historical characters debating topics and writing letters at a particular time and place in the past. In this session, we will exam both traditional and experiential assessment approaches using these games.
In this workshop session, attendees will play a short Reacting game tutorial (e.g. Bomb the Church), with each person being assigned a role. The session will start with a short (~15 minute) introduction to reacting games, followed by 30 minutes of gameplay. We will then discuss how to assess student learning with such games. Finally, they will be directed to websites where they can download reacting games under development and sample rubrics for assessing student performance in games.
If any of the attendees are curious to hear about my “epic finale” from this year, I can talk about that in the evening session briefly.
