Abstract

In this poster, we present issues and questions associated with the use of game making to cultivate designerly thinking among learners who are not in professional design contexts. We describe our use of design games to reduce the complexity of open-ended game design while encouraging deeper engagement with design processes. We invite discussion of preliminary data that illustrate strengths, limitations, and future directions for the use of design games in scholarship and practice.
