This lecture will feature a discussion of game design within the context of professional military education. DEPSECDEF Work talked to the need to incorporate wargaming into the formal military education system. One approach to executing this issue is to offer a course in wargame design to students at multiple levels of professional development. However, questions on how to implement this approach remain: At what point(s) within an officer’s career should they be exposed to wargaming? What aspect of wargaming should be emphasized? What level of proficiency is desired? What portions, if any, of the remaining curriculum should be dropped or modified to accommodate this requirement?
Dr James Sterrett, US Army, will address these and other related issues in his discussion of a wargame design curricula at the US Army Command and General Staff College.
Slides will be provided prior to the lecture.
This brown bag will be held entirely via teleconference. Conference Dial-In Number: (712) 770-4160
Participant Access Code: 388975#
