Public Workshop: Using Play and Games in the Adult Classroom, Carleton University in Ottawa
We are holding a workshop for instructors in the post-secondary and adult classroom in Ottawa in April 2020!
Join us for this incredible instructor experience at Carleton University on Thursday, April 16, 2020. The workshop introduces instructors to using play and games for enhanced learning and engagement in the adult classroom. This one-day learning program provides adult classroom instructors with eight ways to use outcome-based play:
1 enhancing memory through heightened emotional experience
2 shaping classroom culture
3 social and collaborative learning
4 using the hands for kinesthetic learning and improved creativity
5 a heightened sense of purpose
6 narrative, emblematic and contextual play to maximize the benefits of the flipped classroom
7 drawing on the natural confidence students have in play and games.
8 engaging the students on a personal level, despite class size
CEO, Michele Rochon, takes participants through the 15 universal types of play and the cognitive skills and resources they generate, particularly for adult learners. We analyze the paradigm shift needed to reinstate in adults an openness to play-based learning: imagination, delight, creativity, purpose, joy, and connection, and how to make all of that part of their learning methodology so that they continue benefiting throughout life. This experience equips instructors with techniques, games, and exercises instructors can begin applying in their classrooms: they are highly adaptable and can be modified to suit specific subjects, educational levels, class size, and a variety of adult classroom challenges.

If you're not sure yet if this workshop is for you, contact us. We will send you a quiz to help you decide. This instructor experience will be unlike any workshop you've ever attended. We give you access to a collection of research and techniques that will transform how you teach.
If you already use games in instruction, you will learn how to develop and formalize those games further and perhaps even generate income for you by making available to other instructors in your subject area.
