Game design is a new innovation tool and a valuable skill for anyone working inside corporations, at non-profit organizations, entrepreneurs and designers of all kinds. The social impact games movement is one of the fastest growing and most exciting forms of social innovation -- a powerful way to engage employees and communities, reaching and energizing a new generation in the issues they will carry into their future.

This brief but intense workshop, taught by DSI faculty members Asi Burak, Co-President of Games for Change and Matt Parker, renowned game designer, will provide an overview of digital and non-digital games that help children and adults around the world become more thoughtful, responsible and committed citizens through play. In addition, participants will design and present their own game for social impact.

The faculty will lead participants through a high-level analysis, utilizing a set of guidelines called "the 8-Step Methodology". Created and promoted by Games for Change, the 8 steps work to flesh out original ideas into an informed and vetted strategy.
