The Center for Applied Strategic Learning at National Defense University will be holding another one of their “Roundtables on Innovation in Strategic Gaming” on Thursday, 10 October 2013 at NDU.

National Defense University’s strategic gaming group, the Center for Applied Strategic Learning, would like to invite you to participate in the thirteenth session of our roundtable discussions on gaming. Our intent is to continue to build a regular forum for practitioners and scholars to exchange ideas and compare notes about issues relating to game design, the use of games for analytical and teaching purposes, and interesting projects in the field. We will also have an audio feed available via internet streaming or teleconference (depending on technical issues), which we hope will make it easier for colleagues outside the Washington, DC area to participate. (Please contact one of the organizers for more information about the audio feed.)

Each roundtable invites a few speakers to present short, informal, talks on some aspect of strategic-level games to spark discussion among the group. Please feel free to circulate this invitation to interested colleagues – we’re hoping this will be a means of getting to know and building lasting professional connections between gamers.

Speakers: Scott Martin of George Mason University will present on Mason’s academic initiatives in computer game design, as well as an overview of the Serious Games Institute. Kristan Wheaton of Mercyhurst University’s Intelligence Studies program will speak on “The Five Myths of Game-Based Learning.”
