Meeting Minutes Thursday May 31, 2018 at 11:30AM

Participants: Grace Axler-DiPerte (Facilitator), Mary Ortiz, and Michael Ortiz

  1. Resources: Previously gathered GBL resources can be found on CUNY Academic Commons in the Spring 2017 Folder.
  2. Michael discussed games he uses in his Sociology class.  Pictionary is used to introduce basic terms in preparation for more complex lessons.  Using about 15 minutes of class time.
  3. Mary uses games to stimulate interest and get students hooked on Biostatistics. Family Feud style games get faculty and students involved in co-designing the game.  Giving the students a competition to prepare for at the end of the semester can motivate their preparation.
  4. We discussed co-design and how peer judging and scoring can develop skills in students, and further engage the students not actively playing otherwise (in the manner of Apples-to-Apples).
  5. The FIG will continue in Fall 2018.
