Katie is the director of research and design for the Institute of Play, an organization dedicated to its mission of helping children learn through the principles of game design. In this role, she is responsible for developing new projects, programs, products and services. Part of her responsibilities include establishing a consulting practice within the Institute to work with a wide range of organizations seeking to leverage the Institute’s cutting edge work in their own domains. She is an active game designer and, as one of the Institute’s founders, a pioneer in applying game design principles to challenges outside the field of commercial game development. Katie is also a professor in the College of Computing and Digital Media at DePaul University. She lectures widely and writes extensively on game design, design education and gamer culture. She has co-authored and edited several books, including Rules of Play, a textbook on game design, The Game Design Reader, and The Ecology of Games: Connecting Youth, Games, and Learning, and the Interconnections series, all through MIT Press. Katie was also co-lead designer on Gamestar Mechanic, an award-winning online game with a built-in game design curriculum. She has been involved in the design of slow games, online games, mobile games and big games in the commercial and independent games sectors around the world.
