Open questions for consideration:

- What is gamification?
- What do we know about games and gamification in language teaching?
- Who is researching or teaching with games and play?
- Why be ludic?
- What are the hurdles to ludic teaching?

I am an Assistant Professor in the Master of Arts in Foreign Language Teaching program at Michigan State University. I received my Ph.D. in Instructional Technology and Learning Sciences in the College of Education at Utah State University in 2020. I also earned a Master of Second Language Teaching Degree in 2015. My research investigates the implementation of technology for improving and assessing second language literacy skills and the effect of well-designed games on second language learning, teaching, and classroom dynamics.
Questions driving the roundtable:
- What matters?
- So what?
