  • To explore board games and their possible adaptation to serve as educational tools;
  • To introduce board games as a tool for involvement of young people and explore successful examples of the use of board games in youth work;
  • To equip participants with methods for idea development and learning design that is transferrable to socially relevant topics;

The training course will be intense and will include 4 practical sessions of 90 minutes per day with designated 60 minutes of reflection. The training is designed to produce physical results (designed board game concepts), so there will be very little free time during the week with optional times in the evenings to work in groups. The training program will cover introduction to game-based learning, board game development principles, practical sessions on creating own game concepts, testing the concepts, documenting games and reflecting on the application of such methodology in youth work. As a result we foresee to create several board game concepts and test them with young people.
