We connect educators from every campus and discipline at CUNY who are interested in games, simulations, and other forms of interactive teaching. We seek to facilitate the pedagogical uses of both digital and non-digital games, improve student success, and encourage research and scholarship in the developing field of games-based learning.

Carlos Hernandez edited the blog post Are You Really Going to Argue That Reality ISN’T Broken? in the group CUNY Games Network: 1 month, 3 weeks ago
