    Role Playing as Experiential Learning: How Dungeons & Dragons Assists in Teaching Management Concepts"

    In Fall 2020, students across three universities participated in building a character based on their Ideal Entrepreneur, Human Resources Manager, or Leader. Using the format from the popular Dungeons and Dragons role-playing game, the students' chosen character used their characteristics, skills, and knowledge to perform in three different course-related scenarios. Students were then asked to reflect on their character, their decisions, and the subsequent outcomes. In this forum, we discuss the activity and the management topics (e.g., decision making, individual differences, resources) it allowed us to teach using games as experiential learning techniques.

Service Journalism for Tabletop RPG Creators

Jason has compiled a far-reaching and inclusive selection of seminars and panels from both well-known creatives and subject experts richly deserving of broader recognition. If you have any interest at all in independent RPG design, creation, marketing, and/or sales, this is a jaw-droppingly rich resource.

The fact that it’s received several troll reviews from the ‘Keep politics out of games’ losers tells you all you need to know about the good work this show is doing.
