Making Games for Libraries (London)

13 May 2013 from 9:30am to 4pm

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

A day of making games for information literacy instruction! After running this event in Leeds, 100% of attendees (who filled in the feedback form!) rated it good or excellent, more feedback from the Leeds event is available on the blog.

We will play one or two games to start the day, followed by a short talk on games and play to help give context for the day.

The bulk of the day will then consist of group work - creating and prototyping games for use within your libraries.

There will be blank playing cards, blank board games, dice, counters, and all sorts of other goodies to use in your prototyping. I'll also bring along an assortment of items like iPod touches for trying things out on for those people who may want to think about games like QR code treasure hunts...

If you wish to, one of the booking options also includes a class set (5 copies) of professionally printed copies of an information literacy game, SEEK! (http://eprints.hud.ac.uk/15377/), enough to play with a full class of 30 to 40 people.
