Experiential Learning: The Game as a Teaching Tool to Reach Multiple Audiences and Cross-Disciplinary Divides
A fundamental concept underlying this collection of chapters is the notion of the ‘citizen scholar’: a person able to collate and critique evidence and, subsequently, take action. The aim is to facilitate the development of students who have ‘agency’: that is, both the desire and ability to act on their environment and, if appropriate, change it. However, this is not just any action. If, as is posited, universities in the process of producing graduates are fundamental to a nation’s economic and social development (Pillay, 2011), then the way university graduates operate in the world needs to reflect this.
