Donald Brinkman

Donald Brinkman manages external programs in digital humanities, digital heritage and games for learning at Microsoft Research. He is the Microsoft champion for the Just Press Play project, an experiment to transform the undergraduate education of 750 students at Rochester Institute of Technology into a gameful narrative. He is also leading the Microsoft/Mozilla collaboration to build the Open Badges Infrastructure to support entirely new types of education research and disruptive models of credentialing the skills of lifelong learners.

Donald is a writer, painter, game designer, and a passionate advocate of the benefits of building bridges between technical and humanist disciplines. He is particularly interested in disruptive technologies that leverage crowdsourcing, social computing, culture jamming, transmedia, and other non-traditional approaches.
