In this full day workshop, we will explore how Lego® (or other model making materials) may be used in teaching situtations in libraries.
We will introduce briefly the concept of Lego® Serious Play® and carry out some excercises based upon it. The outline programme below is indicative only and subject to change based on the activities / attendees on the day.
Attendees will have the chance to take part in an activity inspired by Serious Play® before going onto creating their own ideas based upon the methods discussed.
We will then use the materials in a slightly different way, using them to solve problems as a group, then go onto building models that can be used for evaluation at the beginning or the end of a teaching session.
By the end of the day, attendees should have an appreciation of how model making, particularly with Lego, may be used in teaching, and have planned a specific teaching intervention to apply in their own work situation.
All attendees will receive a pack of Lego to use during the day which they will be able to keep if they wish.
