Journal Club: Harnessing the Power of Game Dynamics


Journal Club: Gamification
Thursday, April 23, 2015
9:00 pm Eastern / 6:00 pm Pacific
Led by @TonyNguyen411

We're having a Journal Club discussion Thursday! #medlibs will have a chat on the following article:

Kim, B. (2012). Harnessing the power of game dynamics. Why, how to, and how not to gamify the library experience. College & Research Libraries News, 73(8), 465-469. Available at:

I have a few reasons why I selected this article, but that'll likely come up during the discussion. Here are a few questions we'll consider:

1.    What examples mentioned in the article sound implementable within your institution?

2.    Have you already applied game dynamics at your work? Why/Why not?

3.    What lessons have you learned if you have applied game dynamics?

4.    Are there any tools that you can share with the group who are looking to implement game dynamics within their institution? What about tools used for instruction?

Join me Thursday with your choice of beverage as we discuss this article and how we can utilize game dynamics within our profession.
