  • The Well-Played Game: A Player's Philosophy by Bernie de Koven, reviewed by Roger Greenaway
    one species Community is a key theme the book explores many fascinating facets of game playing that teeter totter between the game community and the play community In the game community the rules decide if you are good enough to play In the play community the players decide if the game is good enough to play if it isn t players change the game until it is good enough A play community could be a mother and child playing together because when the child starts crying the mother stops playing players matter more than the game Or a play community could be children playing in the street who play more softly when a younger child joins in A game community is best characterised by competitive professional sport where the game and the result become all important My understanding is that a well played game is possible in both communities but that good sportsmanship people putting people first is often harder to find in a game community The well played game is a process Details of the process include intriguing concepts like The Well Timed Cheat The Fair Witness The Practice Game The Bent Rule Restoring Balance Quitting and Quitting Practice As an example the logic of Quitting Practice goes something like this to be sure that we are playing with people who want to be playing we need to be sure that people feel able to quit the game whenever they want to So practising quitting makes it easier for people to leave and serves to increase our confidence that everyone who is playing is playing because they still want to play and not because they feel obliged to play Playing a game that you no longer want to play is clearly not a recipe for a well played game But what if a quitter wants to rejoin the game That should be OK too so there is a section on Getting Back In And there is a section on Being Left Alone which is how someone who quits may prefer to be treated by former playmates This is just a taste of what you will find There are many more such angles on playing well that may not seem that relevant when first encountered but soon turn out to be yet another essential feature of a well played game Every new angle triggers my own memories of game playing or other life experiences that would readily support its inclusion in this treatise on the well played game And then there are things that happen outside the game itself such as The Prelude The Interlude and The Postlude such as the 19th hole which all deserve consideration Even within a game there are rituals which may not be strictly part of the game but can still contribute to a game being well played such as the stories or theatre games that precede a game of tag And in case my examples make this book seem to be all about children

  • The Experiential Learning Toolkit by Colin Beard, reviewed by Roger Greenaway
    more creative readers may well find thought provoking inspiration in those tools that do not directly apply to their own context The author is a National Teaching Fellow and a Professor of Experiential Learning so it should be no surprise that many of the tools are suitable for teachers and lecturers wanting to make their lessons more experiential The author s background in environmental work is clear and is the inspiration for many tools And there are examples from the author s work in corporate training throughout all dimensions Despite this broad range of contexts there are few tools that cannot be tweaked to be of value beyond the context in which they are described A significant strength of this book is that most tools are original Many of the tools have been developed and tested by the author in a variety of contexts The blending of practice and concepts works particularly well where the author is providing the conceptual background of tools that he has developed himself This is where his passion and infectious enthusiasm shines through When more familiar tools are presented such as sentence completion or string lines the presentation is more straightforward and less inspiring but perhaps a bit closer to what you might expect from a toolkit I am impressed by the range of tools that use space and spatial relationships Some involve moving labels and objects Different Ways to Know Nuts and Bolts How to get to Others involve giant models or maps on which participants move Just Four Steps Ace of Spades and Walk the Talk Seeing touching moving and making are fully integrated into most of these tools for experiential learning Although I have suggested other ways in which these tools might be categorised the value of the six dimensions structure is that it is universal and can be applied to every situation The tools are illustrative Here is a sample tool from each dimension BELONGING Coffee and Papers Transforming the experience of reading by providing choices about what and where and creating a luxury feel to the process DOING Bike it Construction and deconstruction of objects artifacts or theories in problem based learning SENSING The rucksack and the fleece Making presentations more engaging by appealing to the senses FEELING Reframing rewriting rethinking Converting limiting life scripts or self talk into statements that open up new possibilities KNOWING How to get to work developing abstract propositional knowing from everyday experiences BEING Service Learning Learning through giving in the real world Beard continually challenges the reader to think about how they could be more experiential in their practice for the purposes declared by the author of creating learning that is more engaging more effective and more embedded But what is more experiential for one practitioner could be less experiential for another For example there is the How to get to tool which takes the form of a brainstorm about different ways of travelling to work It is experiential because it closely relates to
