CASL: Alternative perspectives in gaming (31 July 2013)

caslWe’re pleased to see that CASL is continuing its series of publicly-available lectures on professional political-military gaming. Here’s the latest:

The Center for Applied Strategic Learning at National Defense University is pleased to invite you to join us for another session of our “Lectures on Strategic Gaming” on July 31st at 1130-1230 US Eastern.  Our speaker will be Ms. Deirdre Hollingshed (CASL, National Defense University), presenting “Alternative Perspectives in Gaming”.  As part of our efforts to reach a broad segment of the gaming community, the series will be conducted in a distributed environment.  The event on July 31st will be held as a teleconference.  The presentation will then be publically available from the
CASL website at (which has had some technical issues of late which we are working to resolve) or our youtube channel at

For those who have not joined us for this series in the past, the aim of the lectures is to create a resource for educating gamers on best practices outside of the dominant mentorship training methodology. The resulting library of presentations will help to bring gaming expertise and lessons-learned out of isolation and ensure they are accessible to a wider community.  Access to past presentation is available at both of the links above.

To participate in the teleconference on July 31st, please RSVP to in order to receive call-in information and supporting slides.  We also encourage you to circulate this invitation to others interested in gaming (particularly those newer to the field).

Please let me know if you have any questions (my co-host Katie Dusek is on leave and will not be answering emails regularly during this time).
