Elizabeth Swensen

Assistant Professor, Art & Design: Games & Playable Media ​BA Program

As a game designer, Elizabeth's research has focused on metacognitive development outcomes and strategy-based learning in games, taking advantage of the medium’s strength in establishing learning through systems-thinking and social interaction. Her artistic focus is in exploring issues of imposed identity and on the powerful role language plays in enforcing that identity. Her work has been shown at the Independent Games Festival, IndieCade Festival, and the Games For Change Festival.

Games as personal narrative, games and learning, games and social impact, dynamics of language and identity through play
