My colleague Pat Clark and I are conducting a multiplayer scenario analysis (similar to an Alternate Reality Game) to explore the topic of racism on campus. It’s called osw3go.net. We seek to involve our community (although the rest of you can observe) in a constructive dialogue about what we can do, individually and collectively, to prepare to meet these kinds of challenges. Our focus is on raising awareness, facilitating the generation of solutions, and eliciting action and involvement from members of the community. Additionally, this is a good way to research how new media can be used as a platform for simulation, collective problem solving, and social organizing.
Check it out! It’s going to be active for another couple of weeks.
