Dr. John Moser Honored with Taylor Teaching Award

Ashland University Honors Professor with Taylor Teaching Award“One of the things I love about using games in the classroom is how much fun it is for me. As higher education becomes more corporatized, it is easy to be sucked into a depressing morass of paperwork, student learning outcomes, committee meetings and boring textbooks. We can lose sight of what it was that drew us faculty to academia in the first place—the joy that comes from playing with ideas,” he said. “Invigorating debates, the excitement of seeing the world in a different way, the thrill of challenging accepted beliefs and practices. If we cannot give our students a glimpse into this world—a world that is exciting, alluring, subversive and sometimes even a little silly—in other words, a world that is fun, then we really will have a crisis in higher education. And we will have no one to blame for that but ourselves.” FULL STORY
