2018 Session Description

Game On!

For adults • 60 minutes
Category: Facilitation
Thursday 1:30pm • Centennial 8
Time and location subject to change (what isn’t?)

Smart designers know that games and activities can involve adults in learning and connecting like no other method. The exponential growth in on-line games and game meet-ups shows how much we’re into games. Combine that with research that demonstrates the power of games to engage attendees, impact learning and retention, spark creative juices and build teams and community – and you’ve got a rulebook for success.

But how do you create games that are relevant, participatory, content-rich, and most of all – work? Come learn the fundamentals of designing games – that can be played with or without technology – and will work for you and your attendees. Prepare to get YOUR game on!

The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session

  • Bolster your confidence in using games and activities, by gaining an understanding of how game mechanics work
  • Discover tools to design your own non-technology games for your meetings
  • Immerse yourself in a game-playing, learning-by-doing workshop
