In this episode, I interview Dr. Chris Haskell. He is a Clinical Assistant Professor at Boise State University in the Department of Educational Technology. Dr. Haskell is an expert in game-based learning. Dr. Haskell is one of the developers of 3D Game Lab (http://3dgamelab.org/): “a gamified content creation and student tracking platform where teachers can design and share quests and badges to create personalized learning for their student.”
The focus of the interview is on quest-based learning. Dr. Haskell describes what quest-based learning is. He discusses how quest-based learning can be implemented in K-12 and in higher education. Dr. Haskell talks about what quest-based learning can do for teaching and learning. The interview ends with Dr. Haskell providing advice for educators and instructional designers about the implementation of quest-based learning.
