Jolts, Icebreakers, and Live Action Games: Inserting Play into your Presentations
Join Dr. Scott Nicholson, Professor of Game Design and Development from Wilfrid Laurier University in Brantford and author of Everyone Plays at the Library to experience a variety of playful activities that you can integrate into your presentation. Putting people into a playful mental state can open minds and lower barriers, which then makes it easier to engage them any topic. Come with an open mind and a readiness to engage in this active session!
