SJSU Learning and Games Initiative

Mission Statement

The Learning and Games Initiative is an innovative new partnership among several SJSU Colleges, which has been formed to explore the expanded research and education opportunities offered by collaborative gaming and virtual simulation media.

We seek to examine how these pervasive media can revolutionize research and learning, by stepping back from traditional methods and reaching across disciplinary boundaries, to form creative new ways of discovering and distributing new knowledge, both within the University community and beyond.

Our goal is to enable the development top-quality curriculum offerings in games studies for our students, spearhead leading-edge research opportunities for our faculty, and build the ubiquitous technical resources needed to nurture a creative and innovative collaborative learning community.
