Associate Professor of English at the City University of New York’s (CUNY) Borough of Manhattan Community College and a part-time educational game designer
Joe has published 25 papers, including 9 on games or pedagogy in journals such as Computers and Composition and Transformative Works and Cultures. He has given more than 50 presentations outside his home college, and co-founded the interdisciplinary faculty group The CUNY Games Network. Additionally, he was awarded 11 grants, including most recently a 90 thousand dollar Title V Federal E-Learning mini-grant to build Levelfly, an achievement-based learning management system (levelflylearning.com). Joe has spoken to many instructors and librarians who desire high-impact pedagogies and technologies that can lead to better engagement with this new era of college students. Game-based learning is the best tool he’s found for this mission.
