Fight Hate and Build Empathy with Games
A workshop that will walk game creators through a design framework developed by game scholar Dr. Karen Schrier focusing on how certain game design choices can increase empathy and reduce bias in players. The workshop will also include a walkthrough of how to use the framework in a game jam context as a form of anti-bias training for game developers.
The workshop will conclude with a lightning game design brainstorming exercise using the framework.
