FAU Good Practice – Serious Games in Higher Education Teaching

This video (9 min 19 sec) is part of the FAU Good practice series in which lecturers present innovative course concepts and their implementation. Antonia Schorer (Institute of Media Pedagogy, Innovation in Learning Institute at FAU) presents the BUFSIE serious game on social learning innovation for students and educators in higher education.

The aim is to address students directly as well as to provide teachers with handouts. On the one hand, information on social innovation is conveyed in the game, such as the most important terms on the subject. Furthermore, the game should make a positive contribution to convincing students that their actions can make a difference. The serious game is designed to support lecturers in familiarising their students with social innovation education in a simple way and involving them in the development of skills for co-creation and change.

Get inspired by this serious game and good practice! The feedback from the students and implementation advice from Schorer can be found at the end of the video.
