New Workshop Opportunity! Register soon before we fill up!

Matthew, Trevor and I presented this workshop last week at the AEE conference. It was amazingly fun and the feedback has been awesome! We have been busy working behind the scenes on converting many of the in-person games from Team Building From the Toy Aisle into digital format. We're going to host a 3-hour session to introduce you to the new games from the book, but also teach you ways to start developing these kinds of tools on your own. The games we will present will work well in both in-person programs and with virtual teams. We also strategically put this workshop right before the US Thanksgiving holiday, so you can play-test these games with your loved ones if you are looking for fun, educational experiences in the virtual space.

When: November 23, 2020
Time: 2:00-5:00p ET (12:00-3:00p MT)
Cost: $50

Session attendees will:

  1. Be able to recognize and apply the central design elements that facilitate the development of successful experiential tools.
  2. Receive the Full Digital Asset Package for all games presented so you can get playing with your virtual teams right away.
  3. Recognize and apply game-design elements into a re-envisioning of existing resources.
  4. Utilize existing experiential theory to develop a new structure and outcome for an existing game or learning tool.
  5. Participate in a makerspace experience that synthesizes all objectives above in the production of new and unique experiential tools.
