Conversation 81 - Rob Alvarez - A Crisis of Engagement

January 24th, 2019

Rob Alvarez is a professor of business, a podcaster and a gamification expert. We talk about all three this week, but of course our focus is on the last of these three. Rob thinks there's a "crisis of engagement" in education today and we talk about ways to revive students' thirst for learning. And it's not just simple incentivizing; instead gamification is about helping students to find a reason for their learning, and helping them to see purpose in the goals of whatever course they're in.
