NYU Games for Learning Institute
Plass discussed the potential of games as effective learning and assessment environments, and introduced the Games for Learning Institute (G4LI), a consortium of nine universities dedicated to the study of the use of games for learning. He presented design patterns that are based on results of research conducted by G4LI and that can be applied to the design of games for learning.
The Center for Teaching Excellence supports and nurtures effective teaching and learning at NYU. The Center promotes an ongoing, university-wide discussion about teaching and learning matters, striving both to facilitate and contribute to that conversation, and provides practical resources to members of the NYU community to enhance their effectiveness in the classroom and laboratory.
