Result Three (3) of the project "Role for a Change" - How to use Edu-RPGs in non-formal education
The aim of Role for a Change project is to explore RPGs (Role Playing Games) and LARP (Life Action Role Playing) as educational tools and make them accessible to all organisations. For this reason, the partnership developed a training course on these methodologies and made it available to other professionals and institutions. This course does not only include plain methods, but also provides further information that will make it easier also for organizations and trainers with fewer experiences to implement the methods.
In this book, you are going to discover a description of the training course on the usage of Role Playing Games for education we implemented in Orvieto, Italy, from 5th to 11th of September 2022. It starts with explaining the context and methodologies, continues to practical preparation, documenting the experience and finalises with the reflection of the experience. If you want, you can take it and recreate it partly or fully to your liking. What can help you is a Manual with different RPG activities we created.
We present you a ready-made training course on the usage of RPGs (role-playing games) for education.
Feel free to use and adapt to your liking.
In this chapter, you will find more about how to use this book and what it is built on.
RPGs (role-playing games) and LARP (Life Action Role Playing) can be seen as containers of individual and community experiences for the development of soft skills, practical skills, critical thinking, empathy and entrepreneurship; tools to create group relationships, to communicate, and to facilitate creativity and thus growth.
“Being aware of the content and relationship that the words we speak carry helps us to create transparent, concrete, linear interpersonal relationships and above all allows us to go beyond appearances, to move from our own point of view to go and understand that of our interlocutor.” – Luigi Infantino, project coordinator
