DiGRA: Candidate for Executive Board – Jose Zagal (open seat)

Jose Zagal, candidate for Board (open seat)

I am currently a member of DiGRA’s board and have served in this position for a couple of years working hard to promote our organization, improve the quality of the conference’s review process, and also provide more value to its members via the website’s newsfeed and mailing list which I regularly update. I hope to continue to do so in the following years as we embark on new initiatives and continue to strengthen and improve what we have already accomplished.


I currently serve on the faculty at DePaul University’s College of Computing and Digital Media where I teach a variety of courses on game design and analysis, online communities, and ethics. In my research I explore the analysis, design, and use of videogames for encouraging ethical reasoning and reflection. I am also interested in supporting games literacy through the use of collaborative learning environments. Further information on my work is available at my website:
