Next Meeting 


May 28 (Mon.) 6:30 pm to 9 pm


Capilano University, North Vancouver Campus, BR126 - Centre for Community Engagement

Topic: Games for Groups: Process design beyond the sticky note

Facilitator: Tamara Eberle, CPF, Traction Strategy

"Play" has surpassed "a sense of purpose" as a motivator at work and "gamification" of everything is on trend. Research shows that well designed games can engage participants, level power dynamics, open up safe spaces for challenging conversations, and get very effective outcomes. What can we as facilitators learn from organizational game designers, and how do we put these techniques into meaningful practice in our work? In this workshop you will learn more about the value of play and games for groups, explore the key elements of game design, and design a game yourself! Interactive, applied learning guaranteed!

Please RSVP ASAP to Brenda Beck, our IAF BC Chapter Lead at stating whether you will be attending. If you live outside metro Vancouver and would like to participate virtually, please note that in your RSVP.
