The event attracted more than 50 participants, who could experience some innovative methodologies, including Lego Serious Play.
The S-Play team presented the project and its main results, such as the White Paper “LEGO¬ģ SERIOUS PLAY¬ģ – A state of the art of its applications in Europe”, the workshops held during the summer in the partner countries, and the e-demonstrator (online by the end of this year on the project website).

A webinar on LEGO SERIOUS PLAY has been held on August, 28th, 2014 by Elisabetta Frick and Lorenzo Cantoni. During the webinar, an introduction to the LSP methodology has been provided, and its basic assumptions, theoretical foundations, core process and application techniques have been presented.
Furthermore, the two specific LSP applications developed at USI have been presented: URL (User Requirements with Lego) and LLED (LEGO Learning Design Experience).
The videorecording of the webinar is available on the eduhub website, at this URL: https://tube.switch.ch/videos/bd868dcb
During the webinar both URL (User Requirements with LEGO) and LLED (LEGO Learning Experience Design) applications will be presented. LLED is an application of LSP under development at eLab and NewMinE Lab, which supports instructional designers in the design of a learning experience (a course, a program, a whole curriculum, etc.), involving all the stakeholders of the project (participatory design, co-design).
