"Gamifying Music History Teaching"

Nicholas Johnson, Butler University

Gamification, the integration of board or video game elements into other activities, has been proven to have a dramatic impact on learning outcomes and student development, as shown by Kevin Bell, Karl Kapp, and Patrick Felicia. I contend in this presentation that incorporating tabletop gaming in music history teaching increases retention, student engagement, and cultural consciousness. In this presentation I explore three types of gamified teaching methods that integrate party games, live action role-playing, and tabletop card games, leading to improvements in student test scores, writing quality, depth of discussions, pr ...

Second Hour:


"Promoting Equity through Care Pedagogy: The TA Perspective"

Elizabeth Massey, University of Maryland

James Ace, UCLA

Lacie Eades, University of Missouri, Kansas City

Hyeonjin Park, UCLA


This roundtable provides a forum for current and recent musicology teaching assistants to (1) examine the restricted, but important, role occupied by teaching assistants as it relates to care pedagogy and decolonization, (2) share best teaching assistant practices about these issues, and (3) provide insight for instructors of record on how to effectively employ and assist teaching assistants in achieving these inclusive goals of music history pedagogy within their individual classrooms and the overall course.
