Ghost Stories from Learning Game Design: Surprises! A lively storytelling session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The goal of this Symposia will be to facilitate a lively discussion between session attendees where the presenters and attendees all tell “ghost stories” from their experiences in designing games for learning. The four facilitators will start out by telling a few of our own stories, and then work to get everyone involved in telling their own.

Our theme will be surprises, good and bad – and particularly areas where what we learned from data or feedback differed from what our design instincts told us, or what we were expecting.

We’ll aim to host a lively discussion of practitioners – telling tall tales, sharing wisdom (and hairy moments) from the work. We expect many stories to be enlightening, and we’ll record audio of the session.
