Abstract

Prisoner’s Dilemna and the 20 Dollar Game are two team building games using game theory to highlight concepts in negotiation and collaboration. The purpose of this project is to show how these games may be used in a construction project management course. This project provides students the opportunity, in an informal setting, to actively learn concepts on negotiation and collaboration. The project discusses how the two games were deployed while professors documented student learning through observations and questionnaires. Results of the project will attempt to show the interactions between and within the two games. Included is a presentation highlighting the educational benefit of the games to students as well as suggestions for improvement.
