Dear Colleagues,


please spread around to possible interested candidates the announcement for a PhD position within the GATE research project Design rules for learning through simulated worlds.

PhD project: Persuasive rhetoric in game design

This project investigates how the medium-specificity of computer games make them suitable for persuasive purposes and to what extent and in what ways persuasive rhetorical strategies can be designed to convince serious-game players of the veracity of a certain point of view - as in games for change - or the necessity of a behavioral change - as in health games. Although a project description <http://www2.let.uu.nl/Solis/ogc/vacatures/2009/GATEWP42DEFJR-2009-06.pdf>  exists, candidates are also given the opportunity to develop a PhD proposal of their own. This project should fit into the research project Design rules for learning through simulated worlds.
