CfP: Workshop Proposals at Games Learning Society 10.0

The Games+Learning+Society 10.0 Conference begins Tuesday, June 10, 2014 at the University of Madison-Wisconsin’s Memorial Union with the second annual GLS Playful Learning Summit (PLS).  The GLS PL Summit promotes professional development opportunities to celebrate and deepen educators’ use of games in various educational settings, and fosters collaboration among teachers, designers, researchers and others throughout the elementary to higher education continuum.  The PLS on Tuesday, June 10 will set an exciting tone for GLS 10.0, and provide a unique forum for educators to network, design, and play.

Workshop (Blind peer-reviewed)
The PLS at GLS 10.0 seeks proposals for interactive, two-hour long workshops, during which facilitators engage participants directly.  These sessions 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.

To submit a workshop proposal, please visit the GLS secure submission site at: https://precisionconference.com/~gls.  Submissions for 2014 PLS workshops are due by 11:59 P.M. Friday, March 14, 2014.
