Appropriate gamification means taking elements of gamified systems (not games) and employing them to fit into educational settings, e.g. class cliffhangers (a list will be given). By mentally reframing and physically redesigning, classroom learning spaces become more effective and online learning spaces can be newly created thus empowering both students and teachers. The presenters will use examples from their classes.

Discussion & Presentations: Deep Learning Approach
This presentation explores a Deep Learning (DL) approach to discussions and presentations. DL focuses on experiential learning and intuitive knowledge. We will explore critical questions: What makes topics deeply engaging? How can we encourage self expression? How should we structure discussion activities? Can student nervousness be used constructively? There will be a brief introduction to DL theory together with best practices and opportunities for participant discussion.

Choose materials with deep content
Use listening as a base for learning
Set a rigorous schedule of “aerobic” tasks
Interact meaningfully with peers and instructor
Use regular evaluation-feedback cycles
Many students who try online learning often fail or drop out because of poor choice of materials, unrealistic expectations, or inadequate support. By addressing these potential pitfalls, teachers can better prepare their students for the immense upside of online learning.
