Presentation: Life and Learning South Africa: The Special Relationship between UWC and MU

Life and Learning South Africa: The Special Relationship between UWC and MU

During this past fall, Professor Christianson was invited to give a series of lectures and workshops at the University of Western Cape in South Africa. Scott made lots of new friends and colleagues and got to learn a little about how Higher Education works in this part of the world. He will share his professional and personal experience along with the history of the UWC/MU connection and some advice if you should ever want to visit this area of the world.

Appearing on The Professor Game podcast to talk about my "Blockchain Game" activity (sometime in December).

Exact date TBD. The Professor Game podcast  is a weekly podcast where we interview successful practitioners of games, gamification and game thinking that will bring us the best of their experiences to get ideas, insights and will inspire us in the process of getting students or trainees to learn what we teach.

Speaking with eMINTS Educators about The Blockchain Game

Blockchain technology is being applied—or attempting to be applied—in many new areas including law, shipping, contracts, government, healthcare, etc. Putting aside the issue of whether all these applications are really a good fit for blockchain technology, more people want to know how a blockchain works. As an educator, I am very interested in how to teach students about blockchain technology without overwhelming them with technical details. So I set out to develop a hands-on exercise that could be used with any group of students from high school students to adults. We'll talk about the game and play it for a little bit.
