Demystifying EDU-LARP


Saturday, 15:30-16:30

Whispering Woods

Hearing the term EDU-LARP (a larp aimed at educational goals) can be intimidating, which is why we want to help you ease into it by demystifying it one step at a time. In this workshop we will touch upon what are edu-games, look at some edu-larp case studies (also from the Erasmus+ field), and help you take your first (or second) steps through an edu-larp design session and by sharing some materials we found so far. Expect a participatory, non-formal & peer to peer environment.
