A couple of weeks ago I had the good fortune of attending the third annual CUNY Games Festival, which, in turn, had the misfortune of needing to cancel the second day’s activities because of the monstrous storm Jonas that buried New York City in nearly two feet of snow. The Games Festival is an outgrowth of the CUNY Games Network, a group of CUNY (City University of New York) faculty (Joe Bisz, Francesco Crocco, Carlos Hernadez, Julie A.S. Cassidy, Robert Duncan, Bruce Homer, Deborah Sturm, Kathleen Offenholley and Maura Smale) from different branches and disciplines of the university system with a common mission of promoting game-based learning. It is an admirable model for how faculty can voluntarily gather, organize and act in a way that makes a system-wide impact on both faculty and students.
