Serious Games on Sensitive Subjects

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This roundtable discussion offers the opportunity for anyone pursuing building a game where the experience, related goals, and content cover sensitive subjects which may well cover many aspects of health & health care.

Starting with examples of current trends in the use of games to address sensitive issues and subjects, the roundtable lead by Alex Woolner of Coventry University (UK) will discuss how such games are being deployed and the work specifically in this area emerging from Coventry University’s Serious Games Institute.

Other project in attendance will also discuss their work briefly and then a larger conversation among all participants exploring how to make games on sensitive subjects such as STIs, end of life, emotional health will provide a forum to discuss and debate ideas, innovations, and best practices.
