Got a package from Amazon yesterday.
Reading up on game design theory, motivation, and role play game history to build up some background knowledge to start some studies on language learning through RPGs. Hoping to get a group of my students to try out some RPGs, which I can monitor and interview them about, and write up some case studies and action research papers.
So this is a research expense. And they should just be interesting to read on their own.
Some days (most days) I really love my job.
