Outcomes 1.1, 1.2This conversation will examine Moksha, a game that Mark Dennis, from TCU’s Religion Department, developed based on a pan-Indian religious paradigm that includes the notion of karma, the law of cause and effect, and moksha, which means “liberation” or “freedom.” The game, which is played over the entire semester, rewards students for positive behavior, “good karma,” and penalizes them for disruptive behavior, “bad karma.” There is an individual and a team component to the game, which Mark Dennis has been using in his introductory World Religions course for the past six years. It has worked well as a tool for reducing distractions and promoting engagement. Two additional faculty who have started using the Moksha game will join the conversation: Yushau Sodiq from the Religion Department, who has used it in his World Religions course, and Eric Simanek from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, who has used it in his Whiskey: Science and History course.
