Community Notes

Participate in a mock version of our tabletop RPG workshop where we use the game Weave to teach skills such as collaboration, communication, and creative problem solving. We encourage participation of all attendees. A small group will play the game with us, while the rest will fill the role of  "researcher," collecting data about the skills players are practicing. We'll then analyze the data we collect as a group and talk about how games can be used to facilitate connections and teach collaboration skills. We’ll also pass on some of the learning objects we’ve developed.
