Concurrent Session: 75-minute interactive session

James J Pembridge, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University; Lori Mumpower, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

This session will introduce participants to the gamification of faculty development through an interactive small group design scenario that asks participants to take a traditional faculty development experience and then gamify it using the gamification design framework [1]. Gamification involves the use of game design elements and experiences in non-gaming environments. When applied in faculty development settings, gamification has the potential to encourage faculty engagement and motivation and can lead to behavioral change that can impact their teaching.
