Maura Smale, Associate Professor and Chief Librarian at the New York City College of Technology (CUNY), has developed Game On for Information Literacy, a brainstorming card game to help librarians foster information literacy and library instruction. The game is a modification of What’s Your Game Plan?, a card game that teaches instructors the basics of game-based learning. Considering how easy it is to generate and distribute these games via the web, perhaps the academic community should build a portal for instructors to design their own domain-specific games like the popular Cards Against Humanity?
The Utopian Studies Seminar is hosting a discussion of Ahmed Khaled Towfik’s Utopia (2009), which offers a chilling vision of a future neo-liberal world order. Possible Worlds, Alternative Futures will discuss the implications of Towfik’s work for utopian and ludic studies. The projects is co-sponsored by the CUNY Games Network.
