We are thrilled to announce our Serious Games Construction Workshop  

In this hands-on workshop, attendees you will explore the potential
spectrum of serious games, from mini-games to massively multi-learner
games. Attendees will examine issues in serious game design while being
introduced to the "Design-Play-Experience" framework. The framework
presents a language to discuss serious game design, a methodology to
analyze a design, and a process to design a serious game. Throughout the
workshop, attendees will participate in guided activities to understand
the process of serious game design. Attendees will apply what they have
learned by beginning the process of creating their own serious games.
