The purpose of this program is to provide attendees with a framework for using game-based learning in a counselor education and supervision format.  Game-based learning offers counselor educators, supervisors, and counselor trainees a simulated real-world experience while providing a learning environment that promotes leadership and motivation among trainees (Johnson et al., 2013).  Multiple educational disciplines use game-based learning, but little research exists on its use in counselor education and supervision.  Attendees will learn about the benefits and approaches of game-based learning followed by a reflection and discussion from a counselor educator and counselor trainees on how they used game-based learning in counselor education training.
