Deconstructing Games is a new series of hands-on sessions where you’ll have the opportunity to play a game and then discuss how the mechanics in play can be applied in your own learning context.

Session Description:
Apples to Apples is an easy-to-learn game that is different every time. You deal everyone a hand of response cards (often nouns or phrases). When it’s your turn, draw a situation card. Everyone plays a noun response card and the dealer chooses the best answer.             

In this session, you’ll explore the reality that the answer is often “it depends,” or that there are several possible right answers. These situations create an opportunity to discuss the possibilities as a group. This has worked well in various areas, including leadership, project management, and training.

Audience:
Novice and intermediate designers, project managers, managers, and directors.
