FEATURES ON GAMES IN HIGHER ED: The four feature articles below were published by EdSurge and were the start of what I had hoped would become a much longer series/column on digital game based learning in higher ed (DGBL). While they did not turn into a bona-fide series or regular column on this topic, they did help to set the stage for what is happening in this field and thereby educate/inform readers who may have an interest in DGBL.  That was the goal. Digital Game-Based Learning in Higher Ed Moves Beyond the Hype Making Video Games for Higher Ed Requires Major Investment. Is it Worth it? University of Michigan Turns Courses Into Games Game On: How Four Community College Professors Spawned the CUNY Games Network A BRIEF SERIES ABOUT LIFE IN NORDIC COUNTRIES: This was a very interesting project that was published by Fast Company. It was difficult to get interviews with people abroad, but in the end I was able to connect with some very friendly and honorable people from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Helsinki. Social democracy looks to be alive and doing quite well. How Does Life for Working Parents in Finland Compare to those in the U.S.? Can Fast-Food Work ever be a Decent Job? These Swedish McDonald’s Workers Say Yes How Post-Collegiate Life in Scandinavia Compares to U.S. BUSINESS, SCIENCE AND OTHER MISCELLANEOUS STORIES: I would like to write more in this view, so to speak. I would say that these wide- ranging samples reveal that I can write about anything, as long as it’s interesting.  How the Generation Born Today Will Shape the Future of Work Five Strategies to Get Constant Promotions How Choice, Co-creation and Culture are Changing  What it Means to be Net Savvy (pdf) To Understand the Big Bang Scientists Created this Amazing “Synthetic Map” Closing the Gender Gap: Women engineering leaders say gender equality is getting better, but research points to a landscape still needing improvement Why Baby Boomers Refuse to Retire How to Avoid Being Replaced by a Robot Could Nanodegrees be the Solution to the Student Debt Crisis How the Global Hive Mind is Teaming Up to Find a Cure for Alzheimers Why Figuring Out What You Want To Do Isn’t Necessary for Success The Six Tech Advances in Higher Ed That Are Preparing Students For The Future Of Work
