Stimulating Social Learning by Playful Design & Humour
Date Wednesday, Dec 1 Time – Room Schöneberg
In this evidence-informed workshop we will explore playful design in work and learning. You will walk away with 50+ ideas to use humour and playfulness in your own designs.
We all moved to online working and learning during COVID. We learned that social connections are crucial for resilience in organisations. Without these connections to our organisations and colleagues, we experience fatigue more easily and are at a higher risk of burn-out.
We believe that the future of work and learning is blended and hybrid. So online connectivity and the capacity to stimulate social connection and social learning will be crucial. And humour/playful design will be a critical element. In this workshop you will learn what the evidence says and will start experimenting with humour/playful design.
