Gamification was a huge part of LILAC this year and is growing momentum with many Librarians.
In this full day workshop, Andy Walsh will be running his (now famous) workshop on how to use Lego in teaching. We will explore how Lego® (or other model making materials) may be used in teaching situations in libraries.
We will introduce briefly the concept of Lego® Serious Play® and carry out some exercises based upon it. The outline programme below is indicative only and subject to change based on the activities / attendees on the day.
Attendees will have the chance to take part in an activity inspired by Serious Play® before going onto creating their own ideas based upon the methods discussed.
We will then use the materials in a slightly different way, using them to solve problems as a group, then go onto building models that can be used for evaluation at the beginning or the end of a teaching session.
By the end of the day, attendees should have an appreciation of how model making, particularly with Lego, may be used in teaching, and have planned a specific teaching intervention to apply in their own work situation.
We are offering a discounted price for CILIP members and can only accept 25 bookings due to the interactive nature of the event.
Note - LEGO® is a trademark of the LEGO Group of companies which does not sponsor, authorize or endorse this workshop.
