Connect & Conquer: Using a Board Game to Create Connections

Connect & Conquer: Using a Board Game to Create Connections

Academia often operates in isolated silos, with higher education professionals confined to their specific disciplines and departments. However, a tried-and-true approach to break down these barriers is through the power of enjoyment. This workshop is designed to foster connections and inject an element of fun into the academic environment. Attendees will engage in an interactive board game experience and gain insights into crafting board games tailored for their specific needs and objectives. Through the lens of play, we will explore innovative ways to connect individuals and ideas, promoting a more integrated and engaging environment.
