On March 3, 2011, Christopher Fee, Johnson Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Humanities and Associate Professor of English at Gettysburg College, presented "Winning Fafnir's Gold: Teaching with Digital Game-based Fiction."
Professor Fee shared his experiences with game-based teaching using a multimedia, interactive fiction tool that he created and continues to develop. Fee's teaching approach is applicable to a wide range of disciplines and involves the nexus between student reading and writing, instructor digital asset management, and the shared pedagogical goal of student engagement.
Fee's games require students to gather information, exercise critical thinking skills and quantify their own intellectual journey as they enact on a virtual hunt through space and time in a fun and fascinating way. Central to his approach is a reflective component for each student: How did I solve the puzzle? What clues did I unearth? What intellectual tools did I utilize and/or develop?
The event was sponsored by Quinnipiac University's Faculty Collaborative for Excellence in Learning & Teaching and The Technology Users Group.
