Abstract: This paper discusses the iterations of designing and implementing a graduate level course on digital game-based learning at a Western Canadian university. We critically analyze the design of the course by examining the tensions that arose between the course assessment and social practices common in playing games, and discuss activities introduced to mitigate such tension. We also consider how the use of the university library’s space and resources in the second iteration provided new opportunities for the course. We explore on how “playable” the course has been and present our proposed improvements for the next iteration.
