Hubbub has gone into hibernation.

Two new projects in the portfolio

I’ve added two projects to our port­fo­lio recent­ly. I thought I’d post a quick note to point them out to you.

Learning Lab

A block from the Learn­ing Lab game Reg­u­la­tor Rally

The first one is Learn­ing Lab, a design research project we ran in the last few months of 2010. It was com­mis­sioned by an exper­i­men­tal edu­ca­tion­al pro­gram for VU and UvA stu­dents aimed at devel­op­ing lead­er­ship skills. We designed games and play­ful inter­ven­tions for the pro­gram, as well as a blog-based metagame. Have a look at the project descrip­tion and if you’re curi­ous to know more read the posts in the project blog archive. If you’re inter­est­ed in ways to use play in high­er edu­ca­tion, let us know.

PLAY Pilots

The sec­ond project has been a lit­tle spe­cial for me, since I was able to give some­thing back to the rich cul­tur­al life Utrecht has always spoiled me with, and it allowed me to work with some of the most tal­ent­ed stu­dios in the city. PLAY Pilots is a project com­mis­sioned by the city and province of Utrecht which we direct­ed. We were asked to work with fes­ti­vals and games stu­dios to see how play could be intro­duced in more tra­di­tion­al cul­tur­al domains. It result­ed in three won­der­ful live games, and an online game that tied them all togeth­er. Check out the project descrip­tion, the PLAY Pilots web­site and the accom­pa­ny­ing process blog. We’re always keen to work with cities to see how play can make cul­tur­al infra­struc­ture more acces­si­ble to a new audi­ence. Do let us know if you’re look­ing for help in that domain.
