Game On – Applied Learning with Agile Games

Game On – Applied Learning with Agile Games

First Wednesdays – 11 AM EST • Online

Come learn and share Agile games and exercises that can help to create Aha! moments for yourself, your teams, and those that lead them. We’ll bring our favorites, and we encourage you to bring your games to share too. This is a great space to experiment with games in development with a friendly audience! We may even create something new together to unlock practice, process, and mindset.

Rules and Principles for the BYOC

We encourage all members to participate, and while in the space we ask that everyone walk in the principles and rules below. Moderators are not always available, so if you encounter any issue or you need help, please contact us immediately.

Guiding Principles

  • The “Law of Mobility” — if at any time you find yourself in a situation where you are neither learning nor contributing, use your virtual feet, and continue to explore the space.
  • Whoever joins are the right people; Whatever happens, is the only thing that could have; Whenever it starts is the right time; When it’s over, it’s over; and Wherever it happens is the right place
  • Increase connection by being unmuted with your video on (headsets encouraged).
  • Help amplify learning and embrace fun!
