Open adventures in educational gaming : from trading cards, to game design teacher hackathons, to role playing our global future Ng, David


The AMBL (the educational arm of the Michael Smith Laboratories) lab of late has been exploring the intersection between open philosophy and the education gaming space. This includes their crowdsourcing venture into biodiversity trading cards, an exploration of table top role playing in an undergraduate course, as well as efforts to embed high school teachers into the hackathon game design culture. Join David Ng as he shares his experience on these various facets of his lab’s work, and participate in a discussion of the benefits and pitfalls of such an approach.
