The ETC Press is proud to announce the release of the Teaching the Game: A collection of syllabi for game design, development, and implementation, Volume 1 & Volume 2, edited by Richard E. Ferdig, Emily Baumgartner, & Enrico Gandolfi.
The goal of this book was to collect interdisciplinary syllabi of courses that implement, utilize, and/or teach the development or analyses of games. Chapters include a catalog description, course purposes and objectives, context, pedagogy, assignments, assessment, an expanded course outline, and a set of best practices for instruction. Readers will be able to develop or adapt their own syllabi drawing on the expertise of international leaders in gaming.
