Serious Play in Seattle

I am off this morning for Seattle where I have been invited to speak at the Serious Play conference at DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, Wash.

“A Boot Camp for Serious Learning”
Serious Play Conference speakers will include authors of the latest books on game development and design, the top analysts covering serious games, senior developers of award winning products and project directors already leveraging games for corporate and military training, healthcare and education

My topic

Enabling the Workforce to Create their Own World through Play
Games enhance organizational performance and individual development by translating the dynamics of business into self-led experiences. This session will examine Sims in corporate learning that create authentic, nuanced environments for risk-free practice and skill set development through learning by doing. We’ll look at how games can modify themselves to better “fit” each individual by observing our decision making and problem solving skills to learn what interests and challenges us.
