The Games+Learning+Society 9.0 Conference begins Tuesday, June 11, 2013 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Memorial Union with the Educators Symposium programming featuring innovation, inquiry, and imagination in games-based learning. The GLS Educators Symposium promotes professional development opportunities to celebrate and deepen educators’ use of games in various educational settings, and foster collaboration among teachers, designers, researchers and others throughout the elementary to higher education continuum. Educators Symposium programming on Tuesday, June 11 will set an exciting tone for GLS 9.0 and provide a unique forum for educators to network, design, and play.

2013 Educators Symposium programming at GLS 9.0 seeks interactive, two-hour long workshop in a single session, during which facilitators engage the audience directly; they are highly participatory and creative, featuring a variety of hands-on activities and include discussion and debriefing following the activity. Previous GLS workshops for educators have featured rapid game prototyping, mobile game development, early literacy learning, civic engagement and gaming, and digital storytelling and media.
