Length: 60 minutes


Humans are creatures of story. This workshop will use a variety of short games and mechanics to let you playfully explore your body and voice as a storyteller and develop skills to co-create and tell story. Within this workshop you will have fun experiencing a few example storytelling games, including improv, card games, story dice and role play. In combination with sharing several case studies on using storytelling games to teach medicine, media, history and entrepreneurship we will give you more insight on how gameful storytelling can be connected to learning outcomes, and hence can be used in your academic practice.
