Tri-College History Lecture ‘Playing Games in Class: How Reacting to the Past Changes the Way We Learn’

Posted on April 27, 2016

Wednesday, April 27 | 7 p.m. | Center for Business 10927

Dr. Sean Taylor will be presenting at the Tri-College History Lecture, at 7 p.m. on April 27 at the MSUM Center for Business room 109.

As part of his sabbatical teaching at the University at Agder in Kristiansand, Norway, Dr. Sean Taylor introduced a radical new game-based pedagogy called Reacting to the Past. Dr. Taylor hoped that Norwegian students would find it as engaging as American students did. Since faculty at Minnesota State University Moorhead had used the Reacting to the Past pedagogy with excellent results, Taylor also hoped his Norwegian colleagues would have the same success.

This talk will highlight Professor Taylor’s research into Reacting-based student learning for critical thinking and language development both in the United States and Norway. As part of the talk, MSUM students Rachelle Ihme, Aaron Beck, and Emma Ricke will present their experiences in the classroom with Reacting to the Past.

Lecture is free and open to the public. For more information or questions please contact the History, Languages, Critical Race and Women’s Studies Department at 218-477-2812.

By: Josh Francis , Prairie Business Magazine

FARGO, N.D. – The Tri-College University system and its three members will begin discussions Wednesday with two area community colleges to possibly bring them into their collaborative partnership.

The TCU, founded in 1970, is a collaboration of North Dakota State University, Minnesota State University Moorhead and Concordia College. It allows students at each college to take classes at the other two member colleges.

Representatives of the three member schools, the TCU board of directors and representatives from North Dakota State College of Science and Minnesota State Community and Technical College plan to discuss the possible addition of those two-year schools to the partnership.

“That was something that was brought up at a June board meeting, about looking to explore that and look at where there may be appropriate collaboration,” Tri-College University Provost Tim Flakoll said.

Leaders from all colleges stressed the talks are in the preliminary stages. Read the rest of this entry →
