Description of the game

The Players (university teachers) are asked by the management (or by themselves) to introduce more ideas of modern higher  education (MHE) in their courses. Most teachers will have some ideas to increase the quality of their teaching, but will have no systematic insight in what the real possibilities are of modern higher education.

In the serious game MHE University teachers study the components and the design principles of Modern Higher Education. They select the most promising components they will try in their own course and  the main requirements for implementing the selected components.
After finishing the game the teachers start with redesigning and developing their course in a modern higher education course.

Learning objectives:

  1. To give the player clear insight in the design principles behind Modern Higher Education and the possibilities how to apply these principles in higher education.
  2. To select the most promising ideas to modernize the players own course (the what-question) and formulate the expected results of the implementation (the why-question).
  3. To formulate the qualities which have to be realized to achieve the expected learning results.

To prepare a teachers team discussion about which possibilities of Modern Higher Education should be introduced in the program and the teacher courses.
