Meaningful Gamification with Dr. Scott Nicholson

Wednesday, November 14th
12pm to 1:30pm
301 College Ave. – Interaction Design Lab

Join Dr. Scott Nicholson, Associate Professor from Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies and director of the Because Play Matters game lab for a presentation about Meaningful Gamification. During this talk, Dr. Nicholson will explain the basics of gamification, talk about some of the risks of using reward-based gamification, and present his model for Meaningful Gamification, which is focused on using play and engaging game mechanisms to help people find meaning in non-game settings. Participants will also engage in activities exploring the concepts of making gamification meaningful.
