“Joe offered an engaging, interactive, well-organized mini-workshop that not only inspired participants but gave us a sense that this wasn't over our heads, but a pedagogical tool we could easily embrace…” —Dr. Aimee E. Berger, Director of Faculty Programs, Cengage Learning Publishing Company
All across the world, Joe delivers interdisciplinary conference keynotes and professional development workshops using game-based learning pedagogy.
His audience has included college and K-12 teachers, corporate marketers, sideshow performers, and other professionals, all looking for better ways to engage with their learners. Rather than a purely academic lecture, he provides interactive demonstrations and theoretical models that can be immediately applied to any problem, whether in the classroom or in the workplace. This means that even if you have a mixed room of teachers and non-teachers, everyone will walk away with practical knowledge for their field.
To date, he has presented at 80+ workshops and conferences. Highlights include full-day workshops of his design at Rio Salado (part of Maricopa Community Colleges) and Mercy College, and a guest panel on game-based learning with Marc Prensky at the CUNY General Education Conference.
