Setting Students’ Minds on Fire: Using Reacting to the Past to transform your teaching with role-playing games – Faculty Fellow
The Center for Teaching and Learning highlights the work of our Faculty Fellows in these special events. The Faculty Fellows will present their faculty development leadership projects in an interactive working lunch format, with healthy lunch options provided. All events are designed to provide the university community with the opportunity to learn and connect.
Reacting to the Past (RTTP) is a pedagogy that employs role-playing games set within historical scenarios to engage students in debate about fundamental interdisciplinary questions. Participants in this interaction-intense workshop will play a micro-RTTP game that encapsulates the core elements of the pedagogy. Following the game, we will hold a Q&A session with faculty and students who have experienced the deep learning these games can produce.
