Social emotional skills and global citizenship have been recognized as fundamental competencies required in individuals to build peaceful and sustainable societies. However, the current mode of education, that is largely one-dimensional and lacks an experiential, agency-driven approach does not work effectively for SEL.

This session will explore in depth the process of designing game-based courses that leverage the inherent qualities of video-games to create the ideal learning environment.
