Short Description:
Can you enhance your teaching lesson or training exercise with the mechanics of board games in only 20 minutes? For educators, training managers, content & game designers.
Long Description:
What do the lesson “Finding Citations,” the game “Trivial Pursuit,” and the mechanic “Bluffing” have in common? Your team’s mission is to brainstorm a creative active-learning exercise or game in 20 minutes, by mixing elements from play and board games. Forget video games; think LOW-TECH index cards, roleplays, & puzzling questions. Whether you need to teach the rules of citation or compliance, a “game plan” can help! If you’re an educator, training manager, presenter, instructional or game designer, you’ll learn how to integrate play & simulations into your classroom or workspace. This full-featured workshop begins with an interactive presentation, then segues into whole room active game design, and is kept at an optimum size so we can explore your instructional problems in depth. Led by a professor and author of The Allure of Play from Columbia University. (Workshop changes each year.)
