II. Brainstorming for Serious Game Design – A Participatory Workshop

Facilitating a Participatory Workshop for Serious Game Design

Workshop format and group composition

See Resource 2 for a sample workshop agenda. For an effective workshop, it is ideal to include all roles within the design team, e.g., subject matter experts, instructional designers and game developers. The game design workshop group can have as few as three participants and, ideally, should not exceed ten people. The workshop can include multiple design groups provided that a facilitator is allocated to each group.

Materials

The following is a list of suggested materials for the workshop:

  • The Art of Serious Game Design cards (grouped into decks for Brainstorming Part 1 and 2)
  • The Art of Serious Game Design methodology circle
  • Sticky notes (in colours corresponding to the quadrants of the methodology circle)
  • Pens/pencils
  • Flipchart paper
