The Teacher Training in Smart Gamification concerns a process of gamification - the use of game design elements in non-game contexts to increase motivation. It includes presentations of some models of gamification and gives clues how to plan and implement this process.

Within the Erasmus+ funded project "e-Close – A model for Interactive (A)Synchronous Learning in Online STEM Education" further education in the field of (online) teaching is offered for teachers. Four universities work together on the project (TU Lodz in Poland, the University of Alcala in Spain, and the University of Aveiro in Portugal) and the workshop takes place at one partner institution.

IIt will be a five-day workshop (each day 3-5 hours) taking place in January/February in Saarbrücken (Germany) and the business trip will be funded via the project.

More information about the project can be found on www.eclose.eu


  • The main goal of the training is the empowerment and motivation of teachers to use gamification in teaching and learning activities.​
  • To achieve that goal, the idea, assumptions, process and possible models of gamification will be presented.

Learning Outcomes

After completing the training the participants will be able to:​

  • Understand the usefulness of the different gamification methods and tools regarding different subjects.​
  • Comparing different gamification methods and tools/applications that are available. ​
  • Integrate gamification tools to improve knowledge transfer. ​
  • Test and assess different tools for gamification.​
  • Build and design a gamification method for an own course (lecture, seminar, lab, project, …)


  • Different gamification methods
