I’m Speaking At The Next Canadian Community of Corporate Educators Event

Next week I’ll be speaking and running a workshop on using games for learning and development to the Canadian Community of Corporate Educators (CCCE). For the CCCE the presentation it’ll be an overview of what gaming is and how it’s used; then the workshop will be a tabletop game design scenario exploring how to use games for leadership exercises. Participants will be able to leave with a prototype of a tabletop game that they have made.

The CCCE’s goal is to share knowledge about the blend of education and technology and to make the member community more effective. This will be my first CCCE event and obviously I’m looking forward to it!

I’ve started a conversation on the CCCE LinkedIn group addressing games use in the workplace for training. Feel free to join in!

If you’re interested in attending there are still a few spaces left! RSVP here.

Gamercamp 2013 New Format, More Fun Things, and I’m Speaking

It’s hard to believe that Gamercamp is entering it’s fifth run! Every year has been more enjoyable than the last, and this year there are some big changes. The format has evolved from a small, quick, event to being a more fleshed out three day adventure.

This year the event runs November 1,2, and 3. If you’re in Toronto you should definitely go, if you’re not in Toronto you now have a reason to come visit!

Each day focuses on an aspect of game design from business to playing! This year I’m speaking about the importance of different mediums for game design during the Interactive and Games Conference portion of Gamercamp. There are so many good speakers presenting cool things you should check them all out!

The new format for Gamercamp is best explained by the organizers themselves from an email they sent out:

Maker U
  • A full day of talks focusing on amazing interactive and game projects and collaborations happens now on Friday, November 1 as Maker U, perfect for professionals and students.
Gamercamp Day Pass
  • The games now take up the entirety of our venue—effectively turning Hotel Ocho into a giant arcade—over the weekend. We’ve just announced the Official Selections chosen from across North America and Europe.
  • Gamercamp also will have its first original exhibition “Art Of The Ninja” exploring the history and significance of the shinobi in over 30 years of videogames.
  • We takeover the Ocho restaurant to create our own Board Game Cafe open from 10 am to 7 pm, just for Gamercamp Day Passholders.
Salon Series
  • Our fantastic out-of-town speakers are now part of the Salon Series, held every night.

Buy passes and find out more about Gamercamp at their website.
