TitleSerious Games and Exercises Typology Workshop
Presenter(s)Joseph Wolfe
TimeFriday, October 21, 1:00p-2:00p
LocationLake Michigan
DescriptionA theory and research-based typology of serious games and exercises has been created. Its catalog holds over 130 experiences of historic and current interest. This workshop seeks to increase the field's knowledge and use of the typology for those who research, use and create such experiential-based pedagogical methods. Participants will be informed of the typology's construction as well as the system's coding guide used to identify the characteristics of its object games and simulations. In addition to the conference's regular attendees, a pre-drawn sample of the conference's exhibitors will be invited to participate in the encoding of their experiences as a test of the typology's efficacy.
