Bryan Fendley, director of academic computing at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, has been invited to present to the faculty of Charles Darwin University in Australia.
Fendley will join an elite group of subject matter experts invited to present at Charles Darwin’s “Game On” symposium. Fendley is an expert at developing interactive online courses, specifically courses that mimic video games. He and the other presenters will specifically address how video game concepts can transform student learning.
The symposium is a result of the Australian government providing $377.2 million dollars for projects to assist universities in their country. Charles Darwin University will receive $20 million to deliver innovative education programs and modernize its online curriculum.
According to Fendley, video games are a new form of media that colleges everywhere are recognizing as being beneficial in creating active learning environments.
