It's a LARP! Integrating Live Action Roleplaying into the Classroom
Room 208 Self Hall, 2:30 – 4:00 p.m.
While LARPing tends to have negative connotations, having students take on alter egos and role-play those characters' potential actions has been shown to increase engagement, critical thinking, and intellectual risk-taking. Learn about three ways to integrate LARPing into your classroom: mock trials, Reacting to the Past, and tabletop roleplaying games. These three forms of LARPing can be integrated into any discipline and subject with little to no cost.
