So I am working on my MEd- Instructional Design and one of the requirements for my capstone is to develope a course for a group of individuals. One way to do this is to help out with a hobby (EDH) and so I would need a group of ideally 10-15 people that would be willing to provide feedback and ultimately take the course. I don't think this will be too time consuming, and I would be willing to send EDH cards to willing participants.

I would also be interested in hearing what you think would be the most relevant or interesting topic. I have a few options, such as:

Tips on Trading: How to Get Those Cards
Politics: Helping Others with their Threat Assessment
Spatial Awareness: Trying to see Three Moves Ahead
The Best Decks: How to Theorycraft a more Solid Deck
Group Dynamics in EDH: WHo's Who and Why?
Negotiation in "pick-up" game environments: How to Maximize Everybody's Fun
Ethics of group gaming (group fun, individual enjoyment and competitiveness)

Or if you have other options, I would love to hear about them. I am working at a University that is all about Competency so I might be ready for the capstone in 9 months or it could be 18 months (I am hoping to get started on it sometime in May/June of next year). So there is time to decide if you want to participate and discuss the topics that I listed above or inject new topics.

I appreciate your time and attention!

I'm interested.

How many topics will your course cover? Will it be designed as 1 lecture (with lab?) per topic, or one topic is en entire series of lectures and/or labs?

Have you considered "Magic: the Puzzling" style arrangements for threat assessment lessons (or other battlefield-centric lessons)?

Are you considering more esoteric topics such as Group Dynamics in EDH; negotiation in "pick-up" game environments (pre or peri-game); ethics of group gaming (group fun, individual enjoyment and competitiveness); etc.?

Still working on details, but it will likely be a deep dive into one topic rather than several. Just getting started so I will have to adjust a little bit no doubt.

Depending on topic, I will likely have some type of "Magic: The Puzzling" maybe as the pretest?

Thank you! So far I have had 11 responses and it is very close.

I was hoping for more than 13 responses, hopefully I can get at least that many to be willing to take the course. Ethics of group gaming (group fun, individual enjoyment and competitiveness) won by a very slim margin. Gives me a direction to take it at least so now I can start focusing on that topic. I mean Ethics itself is a huge topic, but breaking it down into how it affects group dynamics will help to narrow the focus a bit and make it more interesting at once, I hope.

I can’t read that chart, resolution is too low. The ethics response was definitely in my top three though.

Sorry about that, I was having a wierd issue with imgur.

I got 3 more responses today and Ethics is the clear winner now. I will start working on it, and likely be ready for it sometime next summer. I will keep everybody as up to date as you would prefer and really appreciate feedback. Thanks again!
