Faculty Training Workshop

Friday, March 29, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Indiana Memorial Union, State Room West
Free (includes continental breakfast and lunch) and open to all IU system faculty and graduate students  **Registration is now closed**

Engage your students with the innovative Reacting to the Past pedagogy that puts them in the driver’s seat. Students learn by taking on roles in elaborate games based on historical scenarios informed by classic texts. They develop their ability to communicate, work in teams, exercise leadership, think critically, and solve problems. And they have fun doing it.

At this workshop, attendees will play abbreviated versions of Reacting games, and learn about the opportunities and challenges associated with running the games in our classrooms. Game materials and role assignments will be provided in advance.
