Using Games in the Classroom

February 5 | 12:30 pm EST

Join in this webinar designed to share ideas to keep students actively engaged using games in classroom instruction. Participants will learn about a variety of low-tech tools that can help add motivation and fun into any semester. By the end of the webinar, participants will have learned about ideas for active game-play centering on hospitality sales, revenue management, and market segmentation skills. With outlined steps and adaptations for lodging, F&B, and event management, you'll be ready to try them out with students the next day! Methods for adaptations to on-campus and online instruction will also be discussed.
