Interdisciplinary Design
Game-Based Learning Lab (ID GBL2)

Co-Directors Prof. Tamrah D. Cunningham and Dr. Reneta D. Lansiquot

Our Interdisciplinary Design Game-Based Learning Lab (ID GBL2) is a place to create games for students by students. Honors students design a variety of digital and non-digital games that they feel will help students learn the fundamental concepts from different disciplines. Students have a chance to create computer games, virtual reality games, or non-digital tabletop games (e.g., board games, card games, dice games, social games, etc.)  that can be easily implemented in a classroom setting. Once created, faculty who are interested in incorporating game-based learning into their curriculum can request a consultation to discuss their course, play student games, and explore incorporating design game-based learning to target critical concepts in their classroom.  However, the games are also available to any interested student whose faculty have not incorporated our games in their classes.  In particular, our game library allow students to access games online or to make an appointment to play non-digital games.
