4. January 2016 | Serious Play – Using Aqua Republica to enhance learning

We have launched a modular, self-paced course is designed to help guide facilitators and educators on how to use the Aqua Republica game in water related training and workshops.

We shall look at what is serious gaming and how it can be used to enhance learning as well as to introduce you to an educational game called Aqua Republica. We shall also have a hands-on exercise on how to play Aqua Republica to get you familiar with the tool. Finally, we shall show and guide you on how you can use Aqua Republica to enhance your training or teaching experience.

As part of the course material, you will receive an online facilitator’s guide which consists of detailed information about the game as well as suggested activities to be part of a training course, class or workshop. The guide will also help facilitators link up the generic nature of the game to more local issues. This is done by asking the participants relevant questions and getting them to reflect on what happens in the game and how it relates to their surrounding environment.

COURSE TOPICS
Module 1: What is serious gaming and how it can enhance learning
Module 2: Introduction to the Aqua Republica initiative
Module 3: Hands on activity with the Aqua Republica game
Module 4: How to use Aqua Republica as part of a class or training activity
