This workshop will provide vivid insights into how we make decisions as individuals and in collaboration—how we solve problems and how we learn. Participants will explore a variety of games that model dynamics in nature and society; game theory also connects to economics and political science. The activities will be challenging and fun, easy to learn, yet deceptively complex and deep. They’ll spark discussions and ideas for bringing strategic thinking into many types of classrooms. This workshop is ideal for STEAM teachers who are seeking fresh ideas for hands-on classroom activities and for opportunities to learn.
CTLE credit will be provided.
