We are examining the relationship between narrative design and the psychology of emotions and immersion in games. Narrative design is a discipline of creating the architecture/mental model of a game world through the written text.
Instructional designer for online learning at a community college. My interests are online collaboration, immersion, role-play, virtual environments and games. Social network knowledge interests me because I see so much learning that is happening outside of formal learning environments. I believe that ignoring learning from distributed social and professional networks limits our students and our instructors’ futures. I game with a group of highly dedicated educators who are looking at knowledge construction in endgame play in MMORPGs. (Oh, and I have a tendency to be a bit intense about education!)
