IAS faculty member Peter Brooks, along with his collaborator Kris Purzycki (UW Milwaukee), presented work on game-based pedagogy at the Computers & Writing (C&W) conference in Rochester, New York.  They participated on a panel on "Approaches to Teaching Cultivated Community Spaces Surrounding Games."  Peter's work focused on how in-class games (digital or otherwise) create a social experience that can extend and apply to multiple environments, and allow students to learn how to take healthy risks inside a safe educational space.
