An informative event is scheduled as part of the Special Events Series for Fall 2012 at the Faculty Center for Professional Development on Thursday, Sept. 27 in the Library (Building 1L) from 2:45pm to 4:00pm. All full-time, part-time, and retired faculty are invited to join us.

The event, entitled “Serious Game Development: Games for Skill Assessment and Remediation in Children with ASD,” will feature Deborah Sturm (Computer Science), Betram Ploog (Psychology), and Patricia Brooks (Psychology). They will discuss two games for the iPad designed for children on the autism spectrum. One game measures selective attention to emotions; the second game implements a Serial Reaction Time (SRT) task. Both games were developed collaboratively with members of the Psychology and Computer Science departments together with two undergraduate Computer Science students.

This event is under the auspices of the Faculty Interest Group (FIG) on Gaming and Pedagogy.

Please RSVP to Kristen Lindtvedt in the Faculty Center at 718.982.3774 or via email at We hope that you can join us for coffee, conversation, and the opportunity to meet CSI colleagues.
