Using Interactive, Experiential Learning Games in Meetings to Communicate Messages
Event content – see below
Do your workshops or meetings address or introduce complex subjects (from climate change to collaboration)? Are your participants incredibly diverse and need to better understand one another, break down barriers and work together in the future? Would you like your workshops and meetings to have more energy? These are some of the reasons that the integration of interactive, experiential games into a workshop or meeting can be beneficial. This module will explore how to use games most effectively and appropriately to help communicate desired messages. For more details – click here
