In this episode of Board Gaming with Education, Dustin sits down with Christienne Hinz, who he met at IndieCade, an independent games festival over the Summer. Christienne is a history professor at Southern Illinois University where she incorporates gamification and world-building elements into the classes she teaches. The two discuss the challenges of introducing game-based learning to a classroom and share tips on effectively implementing such programs. An avid DnD player, Christienne also shares her path to getting into games based education, meeting members of the pre-existing gamification community, and her hesitation to start the process of introducing games to her large classrooms. We also learn a few fun facts about Christienne on the way.
