TESL Saskatchewan PD Event~Gamification

4:00-6:00pm, November 23, 2019

Join us for a professional development workshop on Gamification - the art of turning learning into games to engage learners and increase interest. This workshop will be facilitated by Chayan Mallick, M.A. Applied Linguistics, CELTA, TESL Ontario, LIT2T. For more details, click to see inside.


Gamification in e-learning has emerged as an effective way to increase learner engagement and motivation. This session explains gamification and demonstrates ways of adding different types of games to a Moodle course. It also shows how Moodle badges can be used to recognize skills and achievements. Edulinc.org, a Moodle site funded by IRCC, is used to demonstrate these concepts.
