Teaching Matters: Food Games

In the second part of this two-part podcast interview on NPR’s Teaching Matters, Dr. Anna Zendell, teaching faculty for Excelsior University’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences, discussed a game-based learning initiative integrating games into two courses – one in history and one in a nutrition course. Excelsior faculty created these games to address specific challenges in the courses and to promote empathy. Zendell and Excelsior Liberal Arts and Degree Completion department chair Dr. Mary Berkery each covered different facets of the evidence-base around game-based learning and simulations and talked about best practices for adult learners. Berkery was interviewed for part one of the series.
