A liberal arts campus professor taught younger students about computer gaming and storytelling this month. Harry Brown (Depauw University, English) presented to the Pittsburgh-area Hightower Scholars:
Brown is presenting an introduction to ludology — the study of games — to five local middle- and high-school students at this week’s Mary P. Graham Summer Academic Enhancement Academy.
The academy is offered to minority youngsters to encourage them to pursue higher education and give them a taste of what college life is like.
Brown published a scholarly book on gaming and education last year."
