Gamification of learning about Systemic change – A contribution from TIPC MoTIL

Past Event
19 January 2022 13:00 (GMT)
19 January 2022 14:00 (GMT)

This is the expression of interest of the Mobile Transformative Innovation Lab (MoTIL) team to showcase a learning game that is recently developed by the TIPC researchers. We are proposing two sessions – one dedicated to gameplay and other for training on facilitation and reflection. The overall aim of this initiative is to develop better understanding of what socio-technical transition is and how to achieve transformations through a multi-stakeholder negotiation and action process. We hope to widely disseminate the game as a TIP learning tool through the various networks present in the conference. We look forward to the conversations and feedback on how to improve the game prototype as well as how to adapt the game in various geographic and cultural contexts.
