Dear Network member!
You are invited to join us on an adventure..an adventure of grand proportions we are calling Librarians in the Wonderful Land of Oz.
This is an online game* that uses theories that gaming in adult learning leads to better and more in-depth engagement by the learner (that could be you!).
The game will run until April 30, 2015 so there are lots of challenges you can participate in. Many of the challenges can earn you MLA CE credit. Yes, you read correctly…MLA CE!
There are challenges that will test your resolve in the areas of emergency preparedness, library advocacy, effective business practices, education, and more.
There are two challenges available for a limited time that will put your name on the leader-board.
1) Register for the game by October 6, 2014 (5 points). Those who do so by the deadline will be eligible to earn 25 points if their name is drawn from the digital hat
2) Update your Moodle profile an upload a picture of yourself by October 6, 2014 (10 points).
*If you are uncomfortable with the idea of game play in adult learning, consider thinking of it as an online interactive professional development experience where you can out earn points of other professionals to win fame and glory amongst your peers.
If you have any questions or comments about this game or online interactive professional development experience, please do not hesitate to contact John Game Wizard Bramble (801 585 5743 office) (800 338 7657 main toll free number) or send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. – jb
