GeorgetownRISE invites you to attend our upcoming Train-the-Trainer Workshop in which participants will learn to facilitate a Role Play Simulation exercise:
Have you ever heard the term “serious game?” All over the world serious games are being used to engage people in sophisticated hypothetical situations based on real-life scenarios. The purpose of these engagements is to help people learn about their challenges, their communities, and themselves in a fun, low-risk environment. A new serious game, customized for Georgetown County, has just become available. In it a group of six people representing various interests in the County learn about flooding problems and then collectively discuss the merits of various approaches to control the flooding.
Over the next several months, groups of people throughout the county will be gathering to play the game and then discuss what they learned. In this training on September 20th you will learn to set up and run these simulations, including the post-game discussion.
This is a FREE training but registration is required.
