GFD Time to TALK: Benefits of Using Different Types of Board Games

Date: Thursday, December 7th, 12:15-13:00
Venue: Online
Language: English
Speaker: Julien Agaësse


The environments emerging from the use of board and card games de-dramatize the course and encourage learners to interact in additional language in a more enjoyable way. During the 2023 spring semester, the new aspect of my research about board game and education was to set up sequences of board and card games to analyze how tools from psychology or neuroscience can help teachers develop active learning environments for their learners, by considering changes in learners' self-confidence, risk-taking and the pleasure they derive from interacting with their peers. During my presentation, I will introduce the results of this research.
