040 - Part 1: An introduction into serious games - with Tamara Eberle
Dec 24, 2019 Season 2 Episode 40
Dr Myriam Hadnes

This interview with Tamara Eberle, trainer and facilitator of Design Charrettes and Organizational Game Designs comes in two parts. In this first part, we speak about "serious games" as an alternative to the usual workshop design.

You will learn the difference between 'gamification' of a process and a 'serious game' used to clarify or define a process. Tamara also answers the question for what kind of questions and challenges games can be a suitable option. Since serious games help the group to suspend reality and approach their topic from a new angle, they might not be for everyone. So, don't miss the part when Tamara explains how to distinguish "game-clients" and "non-game clients" and what it takes to turn the latter into the former.

Check out Tamara's business page and connect directly to her via LinkedIn.

And don't miss part 2, in which Tamara and I speak about how to facilitate workshops without sticky notes!
