Games for Dialogue: Let’s play

Serious games have the potential to ignite dialogue. At the same time, dialogue principles can also enhance serious games due to their interactive process. How can we bring these two worlds together to support and learn from one another? In this mini symposium, we will explore the relation between serious games and dialogue for research and educational settings.

Organised by Wageningen University & Research

Fri 9 December 2022 13:30 to 17:00

Venue Plus Ultra II, Bronland 10

At this interactive meet-up, we offer participants the opportunity to play games designedto support researchers, teachers and students to think beyond their disciplines and explore the boundaries of interdisciplinary dialogue. This will be followed by an open space to reflect and explore the common ground between dialogue and serious games. How could you use it and what challenges do you encounter?

This is organized in collaboration with Wageningen Dialogues, the WUR Game Hub, PE&RC Graduate School and WIMEK. This event acts as a lead-up to future events: Federico Andreotti’s PhD defence on December 12th, WIMEK inter- and transdisciplinary activities, and are part of the ongoing Dialogue Community meet-ups.
