Call for Participation
Workshop: Rethinking Gamification

A Workshop about the Potential and Implications of Gamification
(Incubator at Leuphana University, Art & Civic Media Lab at the Centre for Digital Cultures)

Aims of the Workshop

This call is for an initial gathering of scholars, practitioners and creatives to start the process of rethinking what “Gamification” means - after the first hype has cooled down. We intend to form a group of critical thinkers in order to develop research perspectives, theoretical positions, concepts and projects that change our ideas of how we will look at gamification. A publication and other forms of presentation are planned to take place, supported by the Centre for Digital Cultures at Leuphana University.
