Overview: Well, this last year was something, wasn't it? We made an abrupt pivot to video where we and our students taught and learned inside grids of tiny rectangles. From multi-camera setups to Tabletop Simulator to Roblox field trips, we learned on the fly. While some lessons only apply to online teaching, many of the adaptations will be useful whether in-person, online, or a mix of the two.nnWe bring "Teaching Games with Games" out of retirement for a special mission: sharing the insights of this past year that will strengthen our teaching. Here's to turning pedagogical lemons into lemonade.
