Introduction to “Serious Gaming” & Game Design Workshop

Serious gaming is an effective way to apply theoretical knowledge, and game design can help university faculty create interactive and engaging learning exercises for students, both online and offline. Research has shown that academic courses that include serious games score higher on metrics such as student satisfaction and engagement.

Join SQUARE for a one-day workshop, where two experts in serious game design, Tim Goudriaan and Diederik Stolk, will guide you through the process of building a scenario-based game in the areas of geo-politics, business, economics, and security. This workshop is exclusively for faculty and lecturers at the University of St.Gallen, and prior registration is necessary.

To further prepare, we highly recommend participating in the "St.Gallen Strategy Days", a large-scale two-day serious gaming exercise held on June 1st and 2nd.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn and engage with serious game design! The workshop will be conducted in English.
