Learning and Teaching in Higher Education

Perspectives from a Business School

Edited by Kathy Daniels, Caroline Elliott, Simon Finley and Colin Chapman

There is often little guidance available on how to teach in universities, despite there being increasing pressure to raise teaching standards, as well as no official requirement for academics to have any specific teaching qualification in many countries. This invaluable book comprehensively addresses this issue, providing an overview of teaching in a business school that covers all stages of student learning.

Chapter 23: The use of short in-class games

Jon Guest, Maria Kozlovskaya and Matthew Olczak

Abstract

With both the quantity and quality of support material now available, it has never been easier to use simple, short in-class games in your teaching. These are a fun and effective way of creating an environment that encourages active learning. We begin the chapter by discussing the potential benefits from introducing such games and address a number of issues that might potentially deter tutors from using them. We then compare the strengths and weaknesses of paper-based vs online versions and provide several examples of games that can be played using either method. Finally, we summarise research evidence that suggests using games can have a positive impact on student learning.
