Do your workshops or meetings address or introduce complex subjects (from climate change to collaboration)? Are your participants incredibly diverse and need to better understand one another, break down barriers and work together in the future? Would you like your workshops and meetings to have more energy? These are some of the reasons that the integration of interactive, experiential games into a workshop or meeting can be beneficial.
This module will explore how to use games most effectively and appropriately to help communicate desired messages. You will learn about different categories of games, the diverse contexts in which they can be applied, and improve your skills as a games administrator. We will play a number of learning games, practice choosing, framing, briefing and debriefing them, and also learn how to make our own games for diverse contexts.
