On the 25th of November, Rogers Foundation held their train-the-trainer workshop at the Eötvös Loránd University’s Faculty of Primary and Pre-School Education in Budapest, Hungary. The training was held as part of a bigger conference around play and games in education, called “Akarsz-e játszani” (“Do you want to play?”) and gathered around 80 people. The event started with an opening lecture by Zsuzsa Vastag about the methodology of educational and complex serious games. Later participants were divided into three groups to visit parallel workshops on different educational games and methods.
20 participants took part in the practical train-the-trainer workshop for future moderators of the New Shores game. They had the opportunity to play the game and to gain know-how on how to use it in educational contexts. At the last step, all participants of the conference gathered together again for closing the event. Everybody shared their experiences and what they had taken away from the event. According to their feedback, the participants enjoyed it very much and thought it was very useful for them and will use the techniques in their work later on.
