COWTOPIA : What is the key benefit of our GAME DESIGN approach?

By approaching the learning through a serious game, we invite participants to play and experiment with their ideas.

Through the following game structures,  the game is a cooperative design requiring participants to communicate and adapt to the changing environment.

  • A very clear goal
    • Save Cows from Earth to Mars
  • Very clear rules
    • Iteration based game play with a backlog of items to be delivered
  • A way to track progress
    • Visual Management Board
  • Opt-in participation 
    • Game participants choose their roles

The game debrief provides opportunities for reflection and discussion of participants and facilitators observations.
