A Gaming Simulation Platform for Peace

The United States Institute of Peace has looked at the gaming and simulation worlds and created a platform for peace negotiations and discussions. Join us on November 10 as our member, Ronald (Skip) Cole, takes us through this Peace Platform and explains what it is for and how it works.

Immersive environments hold great promise to help us prepare tomorrow's students for the complex world that they are going to find. But getting simulation training into today's classroom requires a lot of finesse. The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) has created a tool to allow anyone to create and conduct online training simulations: the USIP Open Simulation Platform (USIP OSP). The USIP uses simulations running on the USIP OSP to prepare students for peacebuilding missions, but the tool is not limited to simulations solely of that nature. Essentially, any situation where multiple parties need to work together to achieve a desired outcome, can be simulated. The USIP OSP has been used at both the High School and University level. At this event we will discuss the trade-offs necessary to get simulation training into a modern classroom and provide an in depth look at the USIP OSP.

Join us for an engaging discussion about this platform, how it is used, and what it can mean for your own projects.
