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

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
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.
