From the 4th until the 9th of January 2022, we will organize a training in collaboration with Escoltes Catalans. The target group are youth workers and non-formal educators. The aim is to learn how to facilitate game design processes in groups.

During the course, participants will live a game design process in small groups, taken as an educational tool. The games can be either tabletop games (card or board games) or Escape Rooms. This experience will serve the participants to draw conclusions on how to facilitate a similar process with other groups. Special emphasis will be put on how to promote an inclusive process that encourages participation and critical thinking among those involved.

Participants in this course will commit to replicating the game design experience with other groups during the first months of 2022 (January to April). Trainers will be available to offer support and mentoring sessions in these processes. In April, the experiences will be shared.

This course is part of the European project “Game On: Inclusion through Educational Game Design”, co-financed by the European Commission through the Erasmus + program. More project info at https://www.citiesoflearning.net/gameon/
