What is #play14?

A gathering of people with a common interest

#play14 is an international gathering of people who share the idea that playing is a good and great way to teach, learn and understand!
Many different profiles of people are invited to share serious games, good practices, tips, knowledge, laughs and smiles in a common goal of spreading new ways to teach, learn, create or train. These profiles could be serious gamers, learning-by-doing practitioners, games designers, serious games facilitators from various communities like agile, teachers, specialists, service designer, actors, improvisers, therapists, speech therapists, creativity, Human Resources managers ... you!

What are Serious games?

Benjamin Franklin said “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
During the whole event, we'll play using metaphors, stories, competitions, sticky notes, drawing, improv, singing, and many others innovative ways!
During #play14 we will use or create no digital or video games, because we want to focus on the face to face nature of play and we believe it to be most relevant in the context of this event.

What is an unconference?

Unconference is a conference format where attendees are also session contributors.
There are some simple rules for participants. They will be explained during the Friday morning welcome speech. Participants create the scheduling of the sessions during a marketplace session taking place at the beginning of each day of the event (Friday morning and Saturday morning).
Anyone who wants to initiate a topic can claim a time slot on the Marketplace.

How long does it last?

#play14 lasts two full days.
Thursday starts around 7 P.M. with some drinks and games.
On Friday, we start around 8:30 A.M. with the marketplace. Then, the sessions start. Lunch is usually served around 1 P.M. and a short debrief will take place at the end of the day, around 6 P.M.. Then it's dinner & drinks time.
On Saturday, the schedule is almost the same except that we finish a little bit earlier because some people need to catch a flight and get back home.

What to expect when attending?

Who should attend?

Anyone who is ready to:
- Improve the learning experience while teaching
- Be more creative
- Be more communicative and receptive
- Spread new ideas in a group or a company
- More generally, try to change behaviours or some cultural aspects of a group of people

English will be used in all general communications, but we would like to let the session leaders decide which language to use in their session.

How should I behave when I am there?

Here is the #play14 code of conduct
- Thou shall always be open minded and ready to listen and learn from others
- Thou shall feel free to propose, experiment and explain what you have in mind
- Thou shall not high-jack, sabotage or ruin the learning experience of other people
- Thou shall behave appropriately and act like a decent human being
- Thou shall be ready to get serious fun and good laughs, and should not be shy about that

To summarize: "Thou shall not be a jerk."
