Serious Games put the Fun in Functional

"Het gehoord hebben is niet zo goed als het gezien hebben.
Het gezien hebben is niet zo goed als het weten.
Het weten is niet zo goed als het in praktijk gebracht hebben."

- Xunzi (Xun Kuang), a Confucian philosopher

Wij geloven in ervaringsleren. Door het continu opdoen van nieuwe kennis waar je in praktijk mee experimenteert, leer je beter. Serious games koppelen deze ervaringen aan emotie en daarmee kun je pas echt impact op verandering maken. Ook bieden games de mogelijkheid om in een psychologisch veilige omgeving te oefenen met nieuw gedrag en falen.

In ons Serious Games Lab jaarprogramma leer je elke editie nieuwe serious games. Naast het ervaren, geven we je ook handvatten en materiaal om beter te kunnen faciliteren. Uiteraard oefenen we ook het misschien wel belangrijkste deel, de debrief. Daarin evalueer je de ervaring die serious games bieden en help je de lessen uit deze reflectie te borgen.

Het team

Transforming workplaces, one game at a time

Wij zijn de geeks die ‘Happy Salmon’ ontdekten op de grootste spellenbeurs ter wereld en er een internationaal succes van maakten in de agile community.

Daarnaast ‘hacken’ we bestaande games als The Mind, Black stories, Story cubes en Pandemic om waarde toe te voegen in een business context.

Wij leveren diverse serious games en workshop ervaringen om mensen te verleiden tot verandering van henzelf, hun team en hun organisatie.

Het is een geweldige interactieve workshop met genoeg ruimte voor emotie, ervaring en leermomenten die iedere facilitator zou moeten volgen!

Who are we?

For many years Eddy & Jordann have been using serious games and learning metaphors to help teams and organizations forward.

They are convinced that learning by doing builds the strongest retention, so their workshops will surely include experiencing. Serious games simulate a psychological safe version of reality, where one can try out multiple variations of decisions or behavior.

Putting their own beliefs into play, you’ll not only walk away with theoretical, but also as much practical experience as fits in a workshop. Ready to put things into practice the next day.
