It is my pleasure to support faculty

their teaching practices.
Praise for The Educator’s Guide to Designing Games and Creative Active-Learning Exercises: The Allure of Play
“Instructors who read this book in the hope of adding a few alluring exercises to spice up their courses may well be delighted with the results. But after playing a few of your games, your students will demand more games, and so will you.”
—From the Foreword by Mark C. Carnes, professor, Barnard College, Columbia University
“In this brisk, actionable book, Bisz and Mondelli lure us into the world of play and ask us to consider how we can infuse education with creativity, lightness, and curious engagement. The book is chock-full of templates, checklists, and sandboxes, making it easy for instructors to take the ideas immediately from the page to the classroom.”
—Sarah Rose Cavanagh, professor, Simmons University
