DescriptionLed by two faculty and four student researchers, participants will develop research skills essential to designing meaningful play. Participants will complete micro studies of games in this two-session workshop--one session the first day of the conference and the second session the last day. Participants will be introduced to multiple methods for generating rich data that can provide insights into game impacts and consequences, the effectiveness of game design, player styles and experiences, and strategies for creating better games. Workshop participants will earn points and badges as they progress through the workshop's levels and a certificate of completion at the end of the second session.
