Workshop on “Learning Through Play: From Museum Interactives to Board Games”

Return to Distinguished Lecture Series

One of the fundamental pleasures that make us human is our sense of play. We play for fun, we play to learn, and often we play together. However in a highly digitised world of digitised play or gaming, there are growing concerns about how this may affect young adults. This workshop will consider how non-digital games can be usefully developed to enable ‘learning through play’ for students. With an emphasis on collaboration, we will consider the process of how educational games or ‘interactives’ are designed in the museum environment and how many of these processes translate to games elsewhere. The workshop brief will also consider how games can be exploited in the classroom to create fun and provide collaborative learning experiences for students. The workshop will offer the opportunity to apply the principles discussed to the design of a non-digital game.
