Hi all! You may be stumbling upon this site because of this year’s 4Cs, in which case I want to let you know what I’m doing this year, etc.
Unfortunately, I’m only doing a workshop this year and not a panel–but the workshop is amazing. I’m part of the gaming workshop entitled “Play/Write 3.0: Connecting Game Studies to Composition Pedagogies,” which will cover various levels of implementing games into the classroom. We range from high-tech machinimas to low-tech choose your own adventure narratives. It promises to be very cool and very engaging.
The other thing our workshop team is doing is the first iteration of a CCCC augmented-reality game–a live-action game that centers itself around the activities a typical conference-goer would do. The winner will be published in Kairos, so it’s a great opportunity. Game sign-ups begin at 1 on Wednesday, April 6, and you can like our Facebook page or go to http://cstheday.org/ for more information.
