Memorial uni, st johns, nw foundl, canada, 15-16 june '17
Another great session with the board game and digital game, at Memorial University, St. Johns, Newfoundland, Canada. Thank you Roland Cormier, Wietske Medema (McGill) and Geoff Coughlan.
Memorial’s Master of Marine Studies (Marine Spatial Planning and Management) program is offered through Memorial’s Fisheries and Marine Institute – Canada’s most comprehensive centre for education and training for the ocean industries.
Igor and his team recently provided an MSP challenge session for the Marine Institute’s Master of Marine Studies (Marine Spatial Planning and Management) class, local stakeholders and visitors from McGill University in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada. The session, including the Short Sea Shipping Game Board and MSP Challenge 2050 simulation game, provided an excellent learning opportunity for all participants. The design of the game, the data and technology used and the scenarios and direction provided through the role playing enabled our students to be immersed in real world type MSP situations. Igor and his team demonstrated a high level of expertise, knowledge and professionalism and I would highly recommend an MSP Challenge experience for anyone with an interest in coastal and ocean areas” Geoff Coughlan, Academic Director Master of Marine Studies (Marine Spatial Planning and Management) Program Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University
