The art history survey course has been recognized as problematic
with regard to its lack of innovation and adaptation to educational
trends and the evolving landscape of college-level
While Yavelberg’s recent dissertation provided broad insight
into the faculty perceptions of the course and its outcomes, there
has been little effort to gain a researched perception of the
course by students.
The researches wanted to know: what type of game will
students create that satisfies student desires for engagement
and instructor demands for improved learning outcomes? What insight
will this process provide us about our students in the art history
The study did allow great insight into student perceptions and
the challenges of educational game design for individuals who have
experience with traditional games.
