The CUNY Games Network connects educators from every campus and discipline at CUNY who are interested in games, simulations, and other forms of interactive teaching and inquiry-based learning. Our long-term goals are to facilitate the pedagogical uses of both digital and non-digital games in order to improve student success, and encourage further research and scholarship in the developing field of games-based learning.
