      Playcamp (June 2013)

      Because work should be fun!

      Are you interested in how games can be used to solve problems? How collaborative play can help teams communicate, prioritize and reach decisions together? How serious games and the concept of gamification are transforming the world of work?

      How you can have more fun at work—while doing work!

      Join us at Playcamp, the first unconference solely dedicated to exploring how serious games and collaborative play are changing the world of work. From visual collaboration to Gamestorming, to Innovation Games, the Doodle Revolution, Business Model Canvas and Lego Serious Play, Playcamp brings together the entire spectrum of techniques and technology around collaborative play and serious games.

      This one-day event will explore creative ideas around playing, planning and designing serious games. It’s open to anyone with an interest in learning how collaborative play can help teams collaborate, prioritize and communicate more effectively—from those who have heard provocative things about serious games and their application through those who use games on a regular basis—to those who design and develop games in the physical and digital worlds.

      Playcamp is about YOU. It’s a community event, with the agenda set and created by the participants.

      Possible topics (by no means exhaustive) are:

      • Online game design: developing the visual metaphor for Design Your Own Visual Collaboration Games
      • Serious games for market research—how to elicit customer understanding
      • Tips and Tricks for Facilitating online games
