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

Matrix games are powerful tools for learning in multiple contexts. This session will allow participants to try out The Mongol Matrix Game, a simulation of a seminal event in Russian history designed for undergraduates. Student players in the Mongol Matrix Game take on the role of one of five factions contending for supremacy during the 13th century Mongol Invasion of Russia; all action is overseen by a teacher playing the role of Game Master. This Play, Make, Learn session is most useful for undergraduate and graduate educators who teach in disciplines that require reasoned argumentation and quick thinking. The session will begin with a quick orientation to matrix game methodology. Participants will get to play 1-2 rounds of the game to experience the challenges involved. The session will conclude with Q&A between the participants and the presenter.
