Mindful Meeples: Problem Solving Thru Tabletop Game Design

Mar 4, 2024

3:30pm – 5:00pm CT

How might learners and educators alike design board games, card games, and roleplaying games to work through complex problems and discover new solutions? During this interactive workshop, explore an empathy-fueled design process and engage in a game-based mindset to rapid prototype games that help us address the challenges we face in our lives. In turn, learn how these strategies can be used in any learning environment pre-K through post-grad to cultivate critical thinking, mindfulness, deeper understanding, and social-emotional health.
