Transformations explores the role of games in liberal education

A new issue of NITLE’s newly-revived publication, Transformations, explores the emerging field of games in higher education–not just learning about games as cultural artifacts, but learning with games as pedagogical tools. The issue includes interviews and articles from educators in a wide variety of contexts, from foreign language instruction to libraries, profiling both successful experiments and lessons learned.  Ed Webb’s article “Learning (Together) with Games: Civilization and Empire” offers a particularly interesting view into how games reinforce the pedagogy of active learning, while changing the landscape of the classroom.
