INVITATION TO JOIN EXPERT PANEL FOR STUDY:

Dear fellow researcher/ learning practitioner/ gaming practitioner

I am conducting a Master’s thesis research project at the University of the Western Cape, South Africa.

I am assembling a Panel of Experts to give comment and assessment on a proposed adaptation of the European Competence Framework’s (eCF 2.0) specifically to the utilisation of Social Online Simulation Games in Leadership Development.

In my research I have identified your Mendeley group as a source of potential Expert Panel respondents and would highly appreciate your assistance with this study.

To register and complete the Round 1 Survey, please see:

Kind regards

Thomas Bröker Apart from getting to know to Crystle Martin on the 'Clash of Realities' conference in Cologne, Germany, I heard about this journal in the keynote of Patrick Felicia from the Waterford Institute of Technology in Ireland.

Thomas Bröker I like this article. It has an interesting point of view and I can follow the argumentation of Miguel Sicart. He says the procedural view on games puts its meaning into rules and mechanics. The Player is just the activator of that meaning. But the procedural view on games does not reflect that every player creates her own meaning, playing a game an...

'How I started to study games." http://bit.ly/zPGBlk — I like the idea of this blog post. It is interesting how people came to study games as most people have a quite unconventional way reaching that subject. Wouldn't anybody like to continue and make this a series!?

Thomas Bröker Moses, concerning a list of journals I have added a folder to the group (unfortunately you can see the folders only in the Mendeley application, not in the web interface). I have started adding the journals as 'web pages'. That is the only way I know to create a list of journals and the way I did it in another public group.

Hi, I have a question concerning a paper of Constance Steinkuehler (Scientific Habits of Mind in Virtual Worlds): I am not really sure about the difference between a 'habit' and a 'skill'. I have a vague idea but I am not really sure, if I understand it right. Can I say: When somebody has a skill, he develops certain habits applying these skills? So is a habit something like an internalized 'script'? I am asking because I would like to understand the relationship of a 'scientific habit' to learning target levels (e.g. the taxonomy of Bloom). Most or all (?) of you seem to come from Madison, maybe you can help me!? :)

Moses Wolfenstein Hi Thomas. Mendeley doesn't do the best job of pushing updates (or maybe I don't have my settings right) so this kind of got past me. Steinkuehler and Duncan's use of the phrase "scientific habits of mind" is a direct reference to Dewey and the phrase kind of needs to be taken as a whole rather than considered in terms of what a habit is. Dewey def...

Thomas Bröker Moses, I have just returned from holidays, so I need a bit to assimilate your answer. But at least I want to thank you for your detailed and helpful information. I think I will come back to that later.

Concerning Mendeley: You are right. It still has its flaws concerning the use of the community features. Especially if you don't use the Web-Interf...
