Student engagement in legal research classes can be difficult, especially when the time allotted to instruct is limited. Applying gamification in the classroom increases student engagement, improves student learning outcomes, and provides a nontraditional method of formative assessment. This session includes a pedagogical discussion of gamification and an examination of ways that gamification has been used in first-year and advanced legal research courses. Attendees will be invited to see gamification in action by participating in an interactive demonstration.
