Dissertation Study Recruitment Statement


I am conducting a study on the ability to transfer skills developed during 5 sessions of Dungeons & Dragons into career life. To conduct this study, I need a total of 8 participants (4 who will play, 4 who are alternates) with 3 or fewer years of Dungeons & Dragons experience, are at least 18-years old, and who can commit to 5 weeks (once weekly) of 2-4 hour sessions conducted via Roll20. There will also be journal prompts and one 60-90 minute interview once the sessions are completed. If you or someone you know may be interested, please contact me via e-mail at You will then be emailed an Informed Consent document that will delineate details of the study, including benefits and risks to you, as a participant. Your identity such as an email address, name, place of employment, and other identifying info will be kept strictly confidential and will not appear on any correspondence or final manuscript. Instead, your character name will be used; only the researcher will have access to any other data.

Thank you for your consideration! If you know of anyone who may be interested in participating, feel free to forward this message to them.

Christa Mackey, PhD/ABD

Further information: We will be starting the first session this Saturday, June 12, at Noon, Pacific Time. I need 3 more participants for this study to ensure data saturation. Please contact me, if you are interested, so we can go over the Informed Consent document, the intake questionnaire, and the character creation (which is about an hour’s worth of time).
